Summary: The novella is centered on Charlie Rant, a law student who's forced into being a rum runner to save his brother's life. When Charlie visits his brother in the hospital, he's confronted with an ugly truth: his brother has been rum running for the Caprice family, and someone has been stealing the shipments, leaving the crew for dead. With one delivery left to make, it's now up to Charlie to make things right. However, when a mysterious woman tracks him down, he learns of a rivalry that was supposed to have ended two years ago in a speakeasy, when the Durante family was killed off by the Caprices. Someone has resurrected the Durante name, and with the Caprice shipments being stolen and their rum runners being murdered, the clash of the mobsters has started all over again. Caught between an old feud, Charlie has to put aside his morals in order to be a rum runner for a night so that he can save his brother and, inevitably, himself. Drenched in action and twisted in suspense, this sequel to Speakeasy: A Novella steps outside of the glittery jazz world and into the dangerous voyage that made rum row notorious during the Prohibition Era.

Summary: The cook stopped singing and looked at her in surprise, "You're done already? My! My! What a fine help you are! No, I don't need any more help today." He smiled widely at her and then said "For your help, I'll give you one piece of advice: If you see any gold pieces on the ship - throw them to the dolphins, never the sharks. Always throw them to the dolphins." He turned back to his stove and she stood silently puzzled, before asking him "Why wouldn't I keep a gold piece instead of throwing it in the sea?" The cook spun suddenly around with a wild and frightened look in his eye "NEVER! Never keep one! They are cursed, you understand? Never keep one! Throw them to the dolphins always! There - I have said too much - go now, quickly!" He spun back to his stove and continued working, singing once more, and she turned quietly and left the galley.

Summary: Between 1920 and 1933 Stuart Stone smuggled liquor from Vancouver to the west coast of the United States, mainly aboard the ship he captained, the Malahat, which was owned by the Reifel family. The five-masted schooner had a cargo of 60,000 cased in the hold and 40,000 cases on deck. She sailed south to Rum Row, off Hawaii, to serve for six months at a time as a floating warehouse for the fast off-shore craft which ferried the booze into American ports. Often pursued and occasionally seized illegally in international waters by the US Coastguard, the Malahat was captained by a man who knew the shoreline and hiding places better than his pursuers.

Summary: On October 1, 1917, prohibition came into effect in the province of British Columbia. Washington and Oregon had gone dry the previous year. The ban on liquor sales led to deadly conflict and legal chaos in the Pacific Northwest, and the legacy of those "booze battles" continues into the 21st century. Rich Mole introduced readers to West Coast prohibition's pioneer years in Scoundrels and Saloons: Whisky Wars of the Pacific Northwest, 1840-1917. In Rum-runners and Renegades, he recounts the wild and wacky—and sometimes tragic—results of later prohibition laws through the exploits of both prohibitionists and prohibition-busters, among them Jonathan Rogers, a wealthy Vancouver builder and prohibition leader; the Billingsley brothers, a quartet of handsome bootleggers from Seattle; and enterprising Johnny Schnarr, Victoria's number-one rum-runner. From vicious marine hijackers and bedeviled police to corrupt politicians and frustrated drinkers on both sides of the border, this is an action-filled account of liquor and lawlessness on the West Coast.

As America is in the middle of Prohibition, there are big rewards for successful booze smuggling. Danny nodded. 'I wonder what this place will be like with Prohibition? It seems unbelievable that any country could pass a law to stop people drinking. The next thing they'll be doing is banning sex.'

Summary: Prohibition, legislated in the U.S. in 1921, was intended to ban the manufacture, transport and sale of intoxicating liquor. However, it soon became obvious that successfully policing the entire coastline of the Pacific, Atlantic, and the Great Lakes was impossible. In eastern Canada the door was suddenly wide open for fishermen willing to make the remarkable switch to smuggling. Even with the repeal of Prohibition in 1933, rum-running remained a profitable venture in Atlantic Canada up until World War II. Excitement, camaraderie, drama on the high seas, love affairs, big payoffs, and fast cars - these were the returns for a life of smuggling in Atlantic Canada during Prohibition for those who dared. And David Mossman's uncle Teddy, Captain Winfred "Spinny" Spindler, certainly dared. Like so many others, the former deep-sea fisherman seized the opportunity to turn use his sea-going skills for rum-running between the years 1923 to 1938. Adventuresome and resilient, charismatic and resourceful, Captain Spindler matured and endured through necessity, hard work and tragedy, toward the end persevering like proverbial Job through his allotted ninety-three years. In Oceans of Rum, Mossman once again draws on family, community and Canadian history, this time to bring the story of rum-running in Atlantic Canada to vivid, pulsing life through his uncle's actual experiences. Mossman's book is a three-cornered chronicle involving Spindlers, Ritceys and Romkeys - all South Shore families. It is an account tinged with tragedy and intrigue and shows how seemingly ordinary folk can find themselves thrust into the most extraordinary activities.

Summary: Prohibition in the United States created new opportunities for organized crime to make profits even they couldn't imagine. It did not take long for the mobsters to push out the independent bootleggers and take control of the whole operation inside the United States. Their tentacles then reached into St. Pierre and Newfoundland, both of which had become legalized transshipment ports for liquor ? a real rum-runner's heaven! Once it became clear that St. John's was legally an open port for the movement of liquor the mob welcomed it as another St. Pierre. During the era of Prohibition in the United States, Al Capone emerged as the top mobster in the country. His capers made international headlines. Capone controlled the politicians, police, bootleggers, prostitution, and smuggling. He ruled a 1,000-man mob and his gross income was near $100 million annually. The tentacles of organized crime reached into Newfoundland in a big way. In Rum-runners and Mobsters: Prohibition's 100th Anniversary Jack Fitzgerald leaves no stone unturned as he chronicles the start and end of the Prohibition era in Newfoundland, while exposing mobster involvement.

Summary: The first real cookbook for cocktails, featuring 500 recipes from the wolrd's premier mixologist, Dale DeGroff. Covering the entire breadth of this rich subject, The Craft of the Cocktail provides much more than merely the same old recipes: it delves into history, personalities, and anecdotes; it shows you how to set up a bar, master important techniques, and use tools correctly; and it delivers unique concoctions, many featuring DeGroff’s signature use of fresh juices, as well as all the classics. It begins with the history of spirits, how they’re made (but without too much boring science), the development of the mixed drink, and the culture it created, all drawn from DeGroff’s vast library of vintage cocktail books. Then on to stocking the essential bar, choosing the right tools and ingredients, and mastering key techniques—the same information that DeGroff shares with the bartenders he trains in seminars and through his videos. And then the meat of the matter: 500 recipes, including everything from tried-and-true classics to of-the-moment originals. Throughout are rich stories, vintage recipes, fast facts, and other entertaining asides. Beautiful color photographs and a striking design round out the cookbook approach to this subject, highlighting the difference between an under-the-bar handbook and a stylish, full-blown treatment. The Craft of the Cocktail is that treatment, destined to become the bible of the bar. From the Hardcover edition.

Summary: During the Roaring Twenties, Ben Kerr was known as the "King of the Rumrunners." The U.S. Coast Guard put him at the top of the most-wanted list and offered a reward of $5,000. But ending up in Club Fed was not Kerr’s only worry - he had to contend with Hamilton crime lords Rocco and Bessie Perri. Whisky and Ice takes the reader back to the Prohibition era, when Canada and the United States were obsessed with "demon liquor" (not to mention the endless posturing by politicians). As Hunt aptly writes, the U.S. during Porhibition "was about as dry as the mud flats of the Mississippi at high tide."

  • ISBN Code: N.A

Summary: When Prohibition was the law, Chesapeake Bay was a smuggler's paradise. Rogues of all types transported boatloads of forbidden liquor in the days when America experimented with forced, and unforeseeable, temperance. In a style reminiscent of the era it describes, Eric Mills brings to life the world of mobster and preacher, rumrunner and revenue man, moonshine and "real McCoy." It was a whiskey-soaked age that was supposed to be dry. Prohibition may have been the law of the land, but the Chesapeake Bay country was awash in illegal alcohol. The marshes were teeming with hidden stills, and bootleg liquor was smuggled throughout the waterways and adjoining countryside by daring men in fast boats and faster cars. Chesapeake Rumrunners of the Roaring Twenties is a saga of people--watermen and steamer captains, mob racketeers and "legitimate" businessmen--all of them wanting part of the action. In the maze of bay waters, boats played a key role in that action, many disguised as workboats but built for speed and the ability to outmaneuver the law. On the other side, Billy Sunday and an army of temperance crusaders campaigned tirelessly to encourage Prohibition, while federal agents and Coast Guardsmen shared the impossible task of enforcing it. Using a mix of news reports, government records, and local lore, the author has written a fascinating account of a memorable chapter in Chesapeake history.
