Land of Four Seasons

"I was born in a tent – people called them 'canvas cabins' back there – in 1916 in Henrietta, Oklahoma. My Dad made moonshine whiskey to sell for cash money to help feed us. I helped make moonshine from the time I was big enough to carry a one-gallon bucket. Practically all the country people back there made whiskey. You could look around early in the morning and see smoke rising from all the stills scattered in the woods."

– Ellis "Red" Farley
