"One Eye Closed the Other Red"


"Wherever possible Walker lets rumrunners and bootleggers tell their stories. Constables and U.S. Border Patrolmen relate their experiences, and involved families tell what they remember. These stories are filled with pathos, humor, exaggeration, but always human! Walker captures the feelings of the times, not just the events. Readers will be taken back to those exciting war years in the late 1910's back to bootlegging, moonshining, rumrunning and prostitution times of the Roaring Twenties in California, and to the beginning of the Great Depression that changed prohibition. He has captured one of California's most enticing periods of history, one of the most significant of the 20th century - and one of the most neglected areas of California's past - the Bootlegging years.
