The history of moonshining is a long one, and no one tells it better than the men who once made a living from it deep in the heart of Appalachia. Originally published in 1972, “Moonshining as a Fine Art” takes you through the their time-honored methods of making (and occasionally hiding) safe, successful stills. It also includes a glossary of moonshining terms and recipes for home-brewed mountain drinks like apple beer and blackberry wine.

Foxfire has brought the philosophy of simple living to hundreds of thousands of readers, teaching creative self-sufficiency and preserving the stories, crafts, and customs of Appalachia.  Inspiring and practical, this classic series has become an American institution. In July 2016, Vintage Shorts celebrates Foxfire's 50th Anniversary.
