Book Description :

THE STORY: The setting is the front porch of Roy and Elizabeth's home in Maynard, Texas, on a hot summer afternoon. Elizabeth and her friend Hattie are whiling away the time folding laundry, watching TV, sipping bourbon and Coke, and gossiping about the many open secrets which are so much a part of small-town life. They are joined by the self-righteous Amy Lee who, among other tidbits, can't resist blurting out that Roy has been seen around town with another woman. While the ensuing conversation is increasingly edged with bitter humor, from it emerges a sense of Elizabeth's inner strength and her quiet understanding of the turmoil which has beset her husband since his return from Vietnam. He is wild, and he is unfaithful, but he needs her, and she loves him. And she'll be waiting for him when he comes home-no matter what others may say or think.

Book Description :

The survival of Louis XVII from the horrible Temple prison after the murder of his father Louis XVI and his mother Marie Antoinette is a fascinating story left out of all official French history. No wonder they did not want to hand him over to the Spanish king or the Vendee province, both of which demanded his release. I exist because he survived! If he did not survive who am I then? No one can give an answer to that, because no other answer exists. The book tells his life story and it intertwines with mine. I also left the country of my birth after the Second World War to try my luck elsewhere. I left my parents behind as a young man of 18. I did not suffer as he did but there are many parallels. And in the end our stories come together as I try to find a final answer to the quest of getting my name accepted in my country France.

Book Description :

Once thought to be only the tipple of southern gentlemen and the companion of confederate roughnecks, bourbon has gained a steady resurgence in popularity over the years with an ever-expanding and diverse audience. A beverage distilled almost exclusively in Kentucky, bourbon has attained prominence and appreciation for its complexity, history, and tradition. In The Kentucky Bourbon Cookbook, Albert Schmid provides readers with the best recipes using the famous spirit of the Bluegrass. From classic Kentucky cocktails such as the Mint Julep, to bourbon inspired desserts, such as Bourbon-Pecan Crème Brulée with Chocolate Sauce, and more savory fare, such as Steaks with Bourbon Ginger Sauce, this book supplies recipes for every course. Schmid uses the four distinct seasons of the Bluegrass State to guide the reader through this rich collection of bourbon dishes and color photographs. In many ways a lesson on the flavor profiles that pair with and improve the flavor of bourbon, this book can be used by the home cook and the professional chef alike for inspiration to create new dishes. Much more than just a cookbook, The Kentucky Bourbon Cookbook recounts bourbon lore, food traditions, and Kentucky history, giving the reader a full appreciation of America's native spirit.

Book Description :

The distinctive beverage of the Western world, bourbon is Kentucky's illustrious gift to the world of spirits. Although the story of American whiskey is recorded in countless lively pages of our nation's history, the place of bourbon in the American cultural record has long awaited detailed and objective presentation. Not a recipe book or a barman's guide, but a fascinating and informative contribution to Americana, The Social History of Bourbon reflects an aspect of our national cultural identity that many have long suppressed or overlooked. Gerald Carson explores the impact of the liquor's presence during America's early development, as well as bourbon's role in some of the more dramatic events in American history, including the Whiskey Rebellion, the scandals of the Whiskey Ring, and the "whiskey forts" of the fur trade. The Social History of Bourbon is a revealing look at the role of this classic beverage in the development of American manners and culture.

Book Description :

Original thinking is a hallmark of the people of Bourbon County, Kentucky, and evident in those who have made an impact on American life. The list includes Jacob Spears, who gave the name "bourbon" in honor of his county to the aged whiskey he sold in New Orleans; Barton Stone, who was involved in the creation of the Christian Church at the Cane Ridge Meeting House; and Garrett Morgan, who was born in 1877 to former slaves and went on to invent the gas mask and the tri-color traffic signal. The industrious spirit of Bourbon County's citizens is celebrated in this volume, a visual record of the county featuring the once-thriving bourbon industry, rarely seen photographs of early churches, and glimpses of African-American life in the community. Other photos show the transformation of Main Street in Paris as this thoroughfare prospered and changed and the courthouses built in the county over the years; early "action" photos show the third courthouse ablaze in 1901. Hundreds of familiar faces are captured in this engaging collection, some even pictured in front of the one-room schoolhouses of yesteryear. Photos from the 1898 celebration marking the end of the Spanish-American War show a joyous, patriotic community, coming together in a spirit of celebration.

Book Description :

Interest in bourbon, America’s native spirit and a beverage almost exclusively distilled in Kentucky, has never been greater. Thanks in part to the general popularity of cocktails and the marketing efforts of the bourbon industry, there are more brands of bourbon and more bourbon drinkers than ever before. In The Kentucky Bourbon Cocktail Book, Joy Perrine and Susan Reigler provide a reader-friendly handbook featuring more than 100 recipes including seasonal drinks, after-dinner bourbon cocktails, Derby cocktails, and even medicinal toddies. The book’s introduction explains how the use of specific spirits and ingredients, glassware, and special techniques, such as muddling and infusions, accentuates the unique flavor of bourbon. Much of the book is devoted to recipes and instructions for the professional or at-home bartender, from classic drinks such as the Manhattan and the Mint Julep to drinks for special occasions, including the Candy Cane, Pumpkin Eggnog, and Kentucky Bourbon Sparkler. The authors complete the work with suggested appetizer pairings, a glossary of terms, and a bibliography of bourbon-related books.

Book Description :

While other industries chase after the new and improved, bourbon makers celebrate traditions that hearken back to an authentic frontier craft. Distillers enshrine local history in their branding and time-tested recipes, and rightfully so. Kentucky's unique geography shaped the whiskeys its settlers produced, and for more than two centuries, distilling bourbon fundamentally altered every aspect of Kentucky's landscape and culture. Making Bourbon: A Geographical History of Distilling in Nineteenth-Century Kentucky illuminates how the specific geography, culture, and ecology of the Bluegrass converged and gave birth to Kentucky's favorite barrel-aged whiskey. Expanding on his fall 2019 release Bourbon's Backroads, Karl Raitz delivers a more nuanced discussion of bourbon's evolution by contrasting the fates of two distilleries in Scott and Nelson Counties. In the nineteenth century, distilling changed from an artisanal craft practiced by farmers and millers to a large-scale mechanized industry. The resulting infrastructure -- farms, mills, turnpikes, railroads, steamboats, lumberyards, and cooperage shops -- left its permanent mark on the land and traditions of the commonwealth. Today, multinational brands emphasize and even construct this local heritage. This unique interdisciplinary study uncovers the complex history poured into every glass of bourbon.
