THE WETTEST COUNTY IN THE WORLD A Novel Based on a True Story

by | Read by Erik Steele

Fiction • 10.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2008

Franklin County, Virginia, was a hotbed of moonshine—the wettest spot in the country—during and after Prohibition. The Bondurant boys—Forrest, Howard, and Jack—were well known throughout the county as moonshiners. Journalist Sherwood Anderson, author of WINESBURG, OHIO, was in the twilight of his career when he broke the silence and exposed “The Great Franklin County Moonshine Conspiracy.” Author Matt Bondurant uses undocumented family lore and quotes from Anderson’s writings to weave a tale of desperate times and desperate lives. Erik Steele’s narration is straightforward and engrossing. His careful delivery helps the listener stay with a story that meanders through time, taking side trips into Anderson’s own history. Steele’s tone and pace give this historical novel the weight of truth. N.E.M. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: JANUARY 2012]
