I’m a big fan of the blog Hillbilly Highways. The best thing about the internet is that it brings together communities of like-minded folks who would likely never cross paths without it. H.P. and I have very similar tastes in books and music and there’s a big overlap in our historical interests. I was honored to be asked to be his guest for Episode 2 of the Whiskey and Book Club.
We recently spent an hour talking about Appalachia, Scots-Irish heritage and the like — and it’s all right here on video.
Definitely need to pick up The Land Breakers by John Ehle.
