Incredible Adventures and Exploits During Canada's Illicit Liquor TradeBook - 2004
"...despite flying bullets and cannon shots, Ben had his crew hastily tossing evidence over the side of the boat. Bullet-riddled, the Maritimas finally came to a stop, but even then, the crew continued to throw the beer overboard." This book will be especially fascinating for all readers interested in: the history of crime or prohibition. It is safe to say that America would have been a much drier place during Prohibition if Canadians had not rushed to the aid of their neighbours. While the United States was in full Prohibition (1920-1933), Canadian entrepreneurs were hard at work across the country supplying liquor by the barrel-load.
