Some Reads Addressing Prohibition
I’ve been discussing a wide range of prohibitions over the past few weeks. Today I want to share a few books that, in one way or another, address America’s Prohibition of alcohol.
Bourbon A History of the American Spirit by Dane Huckelbridge
This one is for the armchair history buffs. Huckelbridge gives us an interesting view of American history through its relationship with bourbon (including Prohibition).
Chasing the White Dog An Amateur Outlaw’s Adventure in Moonshine by Max Watman
This one is for the DIYers. Watman provides first hand experiences along with an interesting history of that classic American spirt known as moonshine (some recipes and distilling advice included).
Moonshine by Brian Azzarello and Eduardo Risso
This one is for all the fiction, comic book, and horror fans. Azzarello’s words and Risso’s artwork is a tale a Prohibition, gangsters, lust, greed, and werewolves (yup, werewolves).
If you are looking to expand your reading list for 2021 pick up one (or all) of these books.
