His account draws from local lore, with the backing of newspaper reports and government documents. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR

Here is another fine presentation by Eric Mills, author of CHESAPEAKE BAY IN THE CIVIL WAR. This book of popular nonfiction gives a fascinating account of the rise of the advocates of an alcohol-free United States and the ultimate failure of their attempt to make teetotalers of the entire population. Mills writes with humor and a style that keeps the reader spellbound from the first page to the last.
