Heavy on the author's family history, and as such is also a regional history of southern Virginia. The history of moonshine isn't always the main focus, even though the author had family involved in the making and selling of moonshine which was/is generally by illicit means. This e-book, provided via the LibraryThing Early Reviewers program, could have used stronger editing to bring everything together. Still, it was interesting in a lot of places -- I enjoyed the various informative tidbits throughout. As a bonus, there are also a few food recipes that include whiskey, most of which I plan to try eventually. I would have actually liked to see more of those recipes included and more commentary on them. ( )

Enjoyable idiosyncratic romp through the history of southwestern Virginia. It weaves family and personal history together with anecdotal historical material about alcohol in Appalachia, ending each chapter with a whiskey-laced recipe. The book seemed to lack coherence and organization, since the actual content of the chapters wandered far from the titles, and there is not much about hot springs despite the title. The source citations were clumsily placed in the text when they should have been handled with footnotes Chicago-style. But the personal information was interesting, and the book is short. People who have connections to this area will like this. ( )

A combination of family history and local, even national history. Well written, well-edited, and full of interesting stories. Plus a few recipes. A fun read, and made me curious about the author's other books. ( )

Pretty interesting stuff, its kind of a niche really so maybe I'd have enjoyed it a bit more if I was familiar with the geography and history of Virginia, but nevertheless it was a pleasant jaunt around the forests and stills of the new world. If you like Bill Bryson's style of anecdotal psychogeography you'll probably dig this. ( )

When I saw this book available in the Early Reviewers give-away, I requested it immediately because I am from the Shenandoah Valley and thought this book would be fun, and it was, mostly.
I don't know why it is that southerners who write books with any amount of biography in it always start with the civil war. It almost made me stop reading. Instead I skipped over it and read on to find the parts about the history of the moonshine industry in Virginia and the stories about individual moonshiners operating in Virginia. More of that history needs to be in this book. I'll have to read some of the reference materials mentioned in the acknowledgements to get it.
I got the impression that the book Ms Bryant really wanted to write was a cook book within the frame work of a family history, full of recollections about the delicious meals shared at Grandma's. She should write that.
I received an ebook copy of this book as an Early Reviewers entrant. ( )
