"Mountain Spirits is a fascinating piece of Americana. It traces the grand history of whiskey-making from its origins, through its development at the hands of its most skilled practitioners----the Scotch-Irish of Ulster----to its arrival in the United States in the great waves of (mostly) Scotch-Irish settlers who travelled the Wilderness Trail into the Appalachians, there to make illicit whiskey part of the Southern way of life."
