This book gives us a great, inside look at what goes on in the hills of Appalachia. We get peek at one of the largest smuggling operations in the history of the United States. The author writes in a way that puts us in-the-now while making us imagine what it is like to be there in the specific scenes.
Ex. “First day of April ’86, around noon here in the middle of the woods, where just the night before a storm had drenched the mountains.”
You can tell that Gason is well-educated on the topic of the book so the history that is outlined gains instant credibility. This a great geographical read, but will also engage a reader that likes history, crime, cartels, and corruption.
Mist in the Mountains is a great, quick read. Two thumbs up!
