Popcorn Sutton: The Making and Marketing of a Hillbilly Hero

Tom Wilson Jester

For three years leading up to the death of Popcorn Sutton, writer Tom Wilson Jester and photographer Don Dudenbostel recorded the complex life of Popcorn through photographs, digital soundtracks, and writings. The text and 70 black and white photographs give an up close look taking you beyond the myth of this legendary moonshiner. In this book, you will find Popcorn's handwritten recipe for making moonshine and detailed photographs of his moonshining operation taken one and a half hours prior to the still burning to the ground and his arrest. Popcorn Sutton is probably the most famous Appalachian moonshiner of all time. This is the story of the Popcorn Sutton you don't know. 2011, 66 pages, soft cover.
