Book Description
Rumrunners is a history of the smuggling trade between the French Island colonies of St. Pierre and Miquelon and the United States, the Bahamas, and Newfoundland. The distribution of contraband alcohol has always been an element of the culture of Newfoundland and Labrador. However, with the advent of the American Prohibition era (1919–1933), the French Islands’ illegal practice took on worldwide proportions. This book details the rise and fall of the bootlegging industry in Atlantic waters, the efforts made by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to curb these criminal activities, and the evolution of laws from the Prohibition era to present day that have brought the trade to a virtual standstill.

About the Author
Jean Pierre Andrieux is a St. John’s–based businessman and author of several books published since 1970.

He was born in Montreal of St. Pierre–Miquelon parents, raised in Prince Edward Island, and graduated from the Sir George William’s University School of Retailing (now Concordia) in 1968. He has been closely linked to the tourism industry both in St. Pierre and Newfoundland since that time.

Andrieux has a photo collection that exceeds 30,000 prints and is regularly a guest lecturer on cruise vessels. He is the Honorary Vice Consul of Spain for Newfoundland and Labrador. He is married to Elizabeth King, and they reside in St. John’s.
