Owen’s mother was a gypsy unable to stay in one place for long. Shortly after leaving Owen with his father Gypsy Jacks and the best whiskey in the states. Aunt Rose and her two daughters come to stay to help raise Owen. Soon the entire family was making whiskey, the smooth fire that quenched so many. Prohibition was at its high point, whiskey running, shootouts, and gangs were common in Owen's life. Great photographs and clever commentary. You want to be able to keep your seat as Owen rides with his relatives in the backwoods. Feel his fear as the KKK comes calling. Overcoming disasters, you too will feel the pride of this close-knit family and community. A heartfelt tale that is part of history needed to be told. -PS
