From the Back Cover
More Than Moonshine is both a cookbook and a narrative that recounts the way of life of southern Appalachia from the 1940's to 1983. The women of Stoney Fork rarely had cash to spend, so they depended upon the free products of nature--their cookery used every nutritious, edible thing they could scour from the gardens and hillsides. These survival skills are recounted in the pages of More Than Moonshine, with instructions for making moonshine whiskey, for fixing baked groundhog with sweet potatoes, for making turnip kraut, cracklin' bread, egg pie, apple stackcake, and other traditional dishes.

I gave it two stars only because there may be people who have never read a 'Foxfire' book or they lived in the burbs all their life and have never cooked with some of the ingredients she has listed. It might be interesting to them. For those of us who have had even a smidgen of backwoods living, this book is not worth the money. Sorry
By following recipes such as these, citizens in one of the poorer regions of our country managed to survive - and indeed thrive - during some of our nation's leanest years. The practical skills presented in this book should also not be ignored.
