It’s election season in Blossom County, and that means it’s time for moonshine

Educated at the racetrack, Billy has never had a firm grip on his ABCs, but he sure knows how to read a racing form. When a family court judge threatens to put the seven-year-old in a foster home, Billy and his father go to live in the countryside, at the wholesome little farm owned by Billy’s Uncle Sagamore, where the air is pure, the grass is green, and the liquor from his hidden distillery is clear as water—and about 120 proof.

But pressure from the law has kept Sagamore’s still silent, and the stash of white lightning is starting to dwindle. To get his home-brewing operation back underway, Sagamore needs a distraction—and there’s none better than local politics. When Uncle Sagamore throws his weight into the Blossom County elections, democracy will never be the same.
