...a snort of 100 proof fresh air. This book is a must for anyone interested in genuine mountain culture. -- Amy Kerr, Likker Review Monthly
About the Author
Popcorn Sutton is quite living legend in the mountains of east Tennessee and western North Carolina because of his centuries old trade. Popcorn is an authentic moonshine distiller and builder of the still on which to run the brew. He shows a unique sense of character and value system much as our mountain forefathers must have held with which they survived and reared their families. His life has been filled with disappointments and sadness as well as quality times when he grew up on Hemphill, a mountainous community in Haywood County, North Carolina adjacent to Great Smoky National Park. He learned his trade early and chose to drop out of school, drive fast, and chase women. When Popcorn realized that few people were willing to put in the hard work necessary to build a good "pot" or to make good liquor, he wanted to pass on his experinces with the trade. His flow of language is sometimes colorful and obscene; it is the way he expresses himself. He is real.

Moonshiner's never seemed to get the respect they deserved. White collar criminals flourish while our government pushes shiners to the grave. Moonshiners aren't free loading welfare people, they are just trying to provide for their family.
As an author and reader that appreciates up close and personal honesty, I love this book. I love the honest words, spelling and punctuation. There are plenty run of the mill books written by authors that are completely opposite from Popcorn. I appreciated the binding, printing and everything about this book. If the binding changes, okay, I would still love this book; I just hope Popcorn's family can keep this book in production.
I am so glad I bought this book many years ago.
The only complaint I have is the type set is a little too small...it was hard on my eyes reading it.
But overall I give it 5 stars...it isn't a book that will appeal to everyone, but I enjoyed it, and my Dad is reading it now!
Awesome book. Amazing life of Popcorn Sutton. He was larger than life and answered only to himself. He lived life the way he wanted to and went out the way he chose to with no apologies. He was proud of his moonshine and wasn't afraid to talk about his way of life. I'm glad his kids and grandkids will benefit from his book.
