Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Outlaw Lawrence Kelly smuggled everything from illegal immigrants to opium. Della Totten and Hannah Beebe attacked a trespassing neighbor with an ax and rifle. George Young was the ringleader of a gang of cattle rustlers. Bill Miner was the mastermind behind a series of train robberies. All of these unsavory characters called the Evergreen State home at some point in their lives.Because of its location - bordering Canada and the Pacific Ocean - Washington has attracted its share of no-good varmints and others living outside the law. Yet many of the outrageous stories from Washington's past are not widely known. Now Outlaw Tales of Washington uncovers historically accurate tales of some of the state's shadiest characters and most notorious crimes. Read all about them in this entertaining and absorbing collection. (6 x 9, 192 pages, b&w photos)

Synopsis:

This series features the stories of well-known and little-known outlaws and crimes from a state's history. From rustlers and robbers to crimes of passion and the wannabe outlaws who couldn't quite pull it off, these books offer entertainment and an unusual look at history.

Due to its location on both the international border and the Pacific Ocean, Washington has attracted its share of criminals and peculiar people. Outlaw Tales of Washington introduces such unsavory characters as smuggler Lawrence Kelly, train robber Frank Leroy, murderer Billy Gohl, and John Tornow, the "Wild Man of the Wynoochee". Uncover the stories behind the Great Nude Bathing Case, the 1905 Great Northern Train Robbery, and the Cashmere Fence Dispute.

With the Outlaw Tales series, TwoDot continues its tradition of providing intriguing, readable history for a general audience.
