Great Lakes crime : murder, mayhem, booze & broads by Frederick Stonehouse( Book )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 118 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From Books Back Cover: Great Lakes Crime: murder, mayhem, booze & broads. -- It may not have been the "Spanish Main" but pirates did sail the Great Lakes as did all manner of thieves and murderers. The great Sweetwater Seas had their fair share of criminal activity. Captains sunk their ships to collect the insurance and honest light keepers were "done in" for their meager savings! Throughout prohibition the great Lakes were the back door into America's heartland. Hundreds of boats hauled millions of gallons of illegal booze over the Lakes to wet the dry throats of honest citizens. Although bribes were often paid to assure a safe passage, sometimes bullets flew wild as bootleggers and government agents fought it out on the Inland Seas. On shore, a different kind of vice was practiced where the old saying the "a sailor has a girl in every port" often meant the "girl" insisted on a cash payment. Relive stories of murder, rum running, prostitution and more in this latest book from respected Great Lakes historian Frederick Stonehouse
