The Rumrunners: A Prohibition Scrapbook by Marty Gervais
First published in 1980, though long out of print, Marty Gervais' The Rumrunners: A Prohibition Scrapbook was a surprise bestseller, at more than 40,000 copies. An illustrated history of bootlegging along the Great Lakes, it gave a sense of the prohibition, and the larger-than-life rumrunners and bootleggers who thrived during it, in a way that no document before nor after has managed. This revised and enlarged 30th Anniversary edition brings back the original book with new stories and photographs, an essential volume for anyone interested in the history of the prohibition, and the U.S.- Canadian border experience.
