Lost Flowers is the powerful first-person account of the life and times of one of America’s most notorious moonshiners, Joshua Percy Flowers. Author Perry Sullivan offers a colorful and authentic testimony to Percy Flowers’s adventures—from dodging the law while building a moonshine whiskey empire spanning thousands of acres of farmland, to developing much-admired, renowned bloodlines for cockfighting and foxhound hunting.
Told through the eyes of a child, this poignant narrative also reveals a painful truth that has, until now, remained secret for fifty years: Sullivan is Flowers’s son.
In this spirited, insider’s perspective of a rough and tumble but wise and tender man, Sullivan honors his father’s legacy and passes on lessons learned to his own sons.
Lost Flowers: True Stories of the Moonshine King, Percy Flowers, is available on AMAZON.
