Gold, Historical (Adult Fiction)

Set in the late 1920s at the height of prohibition, this is the story of Emmett Dougal, fisherman and rumrunner who, after having his boat shot out from under him by the Coast Guard off the coast of Maine, decides to return to his Puget Sound roots. Emmett's journey to rediscover a sense of home puts him on a dangerous path when he is forced back into the rum running business. Emmett's story provides a uniquely Pacific Northwest regional perspective of this infamous chapter in America's history.
