About this item

Previous histories of the war between liquor smugglers and the Dry Navy during the Volstead Era (1920-33) have relied on anecdotes and personal recollections, says Funderburg, but her account is drawn from legal records, scholarly sources, newspaper archives, and the US Coast Guard files at the National Archives and Records Administration. She considers the whole coastline, focusing on the busiest centers of New York, New Jersey, Florida, and California. Among daring rumrunner she profiles are two fascinating but little known women: Gertrude Lythgow, and Edith Stevens. Her account also describes international repercussions when the Coast Guard would seize Canadian ships with British registry. Annotation ©2017 Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR (protoview.com)
