Brian Alvis

Bootlegger is about a Southern Illinois family account of daily life in the Prohibition-era making and distributing whiskey. And accounts of hardships as well as celebrations along the way. The author Brian L. Alvis really takes you into the daily lives of the Rose family and the interesting people their lives touched along the way. Reading this book really brought to my attention how things were in my neck of the woods in the 1920s. I really enjoyed reading this book a lot. -Michelle
