About this title

Synopsis:

With its remote coves and miles of unpopulated shores, the West Coast has always lured individuals who felt they could outrun the law and smuggle illegal items such as drugs or weapons for money or in some cases, to avoid government regulations and restrictions.

Night Landing is a chronicle of the underbelly of trade along the Pacific coastline. It covers the tales of smuggling from the early days of exploration and the settling of the West to the present with stories right out of today's headlines. It features a gallery of criminals, some ingenious, all over-optimistic, and their eventual apprehension, through underestimating the hazards of illegal trade. This unusual book describes activities such as smuggling drugs, people, freon, AK-47s, sea otters, and diamonds off the coast of the Pacific - and looks at the motivations of the criminals behind this world of illegal trade.
