Tales of the Moon
Wynn Johnson takes us on a journey of discovery through his fascinating life starting with his childhood in rural Kentucky in the mid-1950s through to the early 1990s in Columbus.
His childhood alongside his large family is adventurous but filled with the simple pleasures of a rural village life. His neighbourhood is bursting with interesting and quirky characters, with lots of tales to tell. However, the tumultuous decade of the 1960s with its space travel, political drama, the Vietnam War, and exciting new music, has a disquieting effect on Wynn. After experiencing a brief first love, Wynn hops a train to find work with his brother in Ohio.
Despite a regular job at a factory, Wynn still dreams of travel and adventure. We follow his story as he experiences a tough initiation into the Marines and then as he moves on and starts his own business.
Along the way, we meet a whole cast of vibrant characters from moonshiners, bootleggers and thieves to the kind and honourable people who have defined his life.
