Moonshining survived wars, the Depression, temperance movement, Prohibition, and the Internal Revenue Service. Exploring the subculture reveals much about the determination and spirit that came to represent the American character.


This is also the story of the revenue man who walked through rugged terrain warding off rattlesnakes and stray rifle fire to enforce federal law. Giant among them was Big Six Anderson, who looked and worked like a cross between Matt Dillon and John Wayne.


In his years as a revenue man he sent more than 500 violators to federal prison, located and destroyed stills, poured out millions of gallons of mash and white lightning, and became a legend in his own time.


Bindings square and tight. Text clean. Lacks dust Jacket. Light handling wear.
