Sinopsis:

Functions as a portrait of small-town America emerging from frontier status into the corruption and violence of the Jazz age. This account of a struggling midwestern coal town profiles small-time bootlegger Kelly Wagle, whose mysterious career, and suspected involvement with two unsolved murder cases, had a lasting impact on his community.

Review:

"Fascinating ... Hallwas's splendid work thematically compares with Anthony Lukas's Big Trouble but is much more focused and accessible." -- Library Journal "An informative, almost journalistic book that is fast-paced, interesting and even tragic. Hallwas takes his time dissecting the intricate anatomy of a small town and beautifully captures the pulse of its people." -- Matt Schlossberg, Macomb Journal ADVANCE PRAISE "Rarely have the secret undercurrents of American small-town life stood so revealed. The Bootlegger reads like a good whodunit and yet stands as objective historical reportage and analysis at its finest." -- John Jakle, author of The American Small Town "A book of compulsive readability as well as great historiographic interest. The stories of Colchester and of its petty criminal folk hero, Kelly Wagle, as Hallwas tells them, raise haunting questions about midwestern identity and American values." -- James Hurt, author of Writing Illinois "Well written and carefully crafted ... John Hallwas's major theme, the disintegration of the community ethos in the process of modernization, makes this story fit every community in the nation." -- Gerald A. Danzer, author of Public Places: Exploring Their History
