    Story

    In the summer of 1987, Johnny Boone set out to grow and harvest one of the greatest outdoor marijuana crops in modern times. In doing so, he set into motion a series of events that defined him and his associatesas the largest homegrown marijuana syndicate in American history, also known as the Cornbread Mafia. Author James Higdon takes listeners back to the 1970s and ‘80s and the clash between federal and local law enforcement and a band of Kentucky farmers.

    If you could sum up The Cornbread Mafia in three words, what would they be?

    The real story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Cornbread Mafia?

    More than one


    What didn’t you like about Paul Boehmer’s performance?

    I wasn't much on his performance really. Being from the area the book is about i understand how the author ment the book to sound. The pronunciation of the words sounds nothing like how the character in the story really talk. It's so off that it changes the way one sees an understands the characters. I'm not just trying to find something to nit pick, it really aggravated me throughout the book. It just needed to be read by someone with an accent similar to the characters or people in this area. It would make more sense to the reader and get the authors point across.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    The real facts about the cornbread mafia which wasn't at all a mafia
