Reviews - What do customers think about Peculiar, Uncertain, and Two Egg?

Entertaining, but unreliable.  Mar 2, 2007
A amusing book, but one wonders about Blevins's research. Consider his s entry for Fairdealing, Marshall Co., Kentucky: "tagged for the fair dealing of Enos Vaughn, store owner....he often traded a gallon of moonshine for an acre of land, and eventually owned as many as 10,000 acres of land." The name of the store owner was John Enos Faughn, not Enos Vaughn; probate and land records put his holdings at about 10% of what Blevins claims, and that Faughn obtained them through grants, not private trade. The author's "moonshine" reference plays to stereotype, but is doubtful on its face (Faughn obtained most of his land in a single decade, when the entire county's population was just over 5,000.)
