Cornbread Mafia proves that the truth can be more exciting than fiction. There are no slow or dull parts in this book. It is amazing that such a small group of people could have run such a hugh and complicated drug traffic.The book is exceptionally well written and difficult to put down until you finish it.

This is a great history of the area that gave birth to the Cornbread Mafia. It is also a detailed account of what happened, taken from the headlines and court records of the day. Higdon has gone far to humanize the men in the story. With several states de-criminalizing pot, one can hope this book will be useful to people to decide where they want to stand. It just doesn't seem right to put nonviolent offenders into the overcrowded prison system. Surely there is a better way?

This book was very interesting since I knew most of the places involved. Was hard to put down once I got started!

Gotta love the outlaw hillbillies. 100 years from now, our children and grandchildren will read about these outlaws and shake their head, wondering how people in "authority" thought they could ever make ingesting a harmless plant, illegal. Props James Higdon.

Having grown up in Louisville, I really loved learning about what was really going on in other parts of Kentucky.
