Synopsis: After 22 years of interviewing old timers and researching newspapers, archives and document, I have finished this book on Califorrnia bootlegging, rumrunning and moonshining. The years covered are from 1917-1935, the war years, Roaring 20s, and early depression years. I let bootleggers, moonshiners, border patrolmen, and constables tell their own stories. To cover more of the state, about 30 local authors and historians contributed their articles.
The book is timeless as we not only explore prohibition, but also obeying laws we don;t believe in, looking the other way, buying illegal substances, deciding moral dilemmas, and doing the right thing.
Featured also are chapters on smuggling by airplane, selling by prostitutes, drunk animals and prohibiton humor. Over 110 photos, appendixes, glossary, endnotes, bibliography and index complete "One Eye Closed...."
