For Gary Kent, the heyday of rum-running in Nova Scotia isn’t just history from 100 years ago, but part of the cherished memories passed down to him by his father.

Growing up in a rum-running family in Yarmouth, Kent said he was told at a very early age not to talk to anyone about what his father, Oland, did for a living.

“You grew up with secrets, family secrets of our relatives,” he said.

Kent drew on his childhood memories and the stories his father shared to write a fictionalized account of the period in his 2006 book, The Coverunners.
