The story of New England is built on an endless armature of fascinating tales of Yankee ingenuity and hardy, intrepid characters. Bootleggers, Lobstermen, and Lumberjacks takes the top fifty wildest episodes in the region's bygone days and presents them to the reader in one convenient, narrative-driven package.

Including incredible but true tales of hardy Yankee hill folk and crusty seafarers engaged in all manner of amazing activity - from witch-hunting to log rolling, sometimes with tragic results - this book is a perfect stroll through New England's past for resident and visitor alike. Yankee history is rife with all manner of shipwreck victims surviving any way they knew how; Indian, pirate, and shark attacks, cougar and bear maulings; and, of course, rum runners and bootleggers doing what they do best.
