First published in 1980, Marty Gervais's The Rumrunners: A Prohibition Scrapbook was a surprise bestseller. An illustrated history of bootlegging along the Great Lakes, it gave us a sense of Prohibition - and the larger-than-life rumrunners and bootleggers who thrived during it - in a way that no document before or after has managed. Long out of print, 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 Prohibition and the U.S.-Canadian border experience. With more than 180 illustrations and 2 maps.
