By James C.

Elkhorn: Evolution of a Kentucky Landscape

How to Be a Bourbon Badass

By Linda Ruffenach $24 By Richard Taylor $35 Author Richard Taylor provides glimpses of sites along the Elkhorn Creek as they appeared at various points in history. Beautifully written, as only a former Kentucky Poet Laureate could, the book focuses on an eight-mile stretch of the creek, beginning with Taylor’s own home, the historic Giltner-Holt House, circa 1859, which he purchased as a fixer-upper in 1975. Short vignettes about the people who lived there, going back to the earliest settlers, combined with public records and photos bring the area from the Forks of the Elkhorn to Knight’s Bridge to life.

Whether you are a novice, enthusiast or connoisseur of Kentucky’s native spirit, author Linda Ruffenach, who founded the bourbon social club Whisky Chicks, shares the ins and outs of the beverage we call bourbon. She delves into bourbon’s history, talks to distillers, shares some recipes, and gives advice on how to confidently order your bourbon like a seasoned professional or, well, like a badass.
