Outlaw Tales of Wyoming: True Stories of the Cowboy State's Most Infamous Crooks, Culprits, and Cutthroats

Outlaw Tales of Wyoming: True Stories of the Cowboy State's Most Infamous Crooks, Culprits, and Cutthroats Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From Cheyenne to Cody, Meeteetse to Laramie, the frontier towns of Wyoming were populated by some of the toughest and most dangerous characters in the West. Butch Cassidy and his gang slipped through the fingers of every posse that came their way. Hired gun Tom Horn—guilty of many crimes—was famously hung for a crime he may or may not have committed. And no criminal records are more bizarre than those of “Big Nose” George Parrott and Frank Towle.
 
From the Johnson County War to the Weston County Poisoner, read about the most dramatic events and the most notorious desperados in the history of the Cowboy State. Through fourteen astonishing true stories, Outlaw Tales of Wyoming introduces you to a state you thought you knew—and a West wilder than youve ever imagined.

Synopsis:

Massacres, mayhem, and mischief fill the pages of Outlaw Tales of Wyoming. Ride with horse thieves and cattle rustlers, stagecoach, and train robbers. Duck the bullets of murderers, plot strategies with con artists, hiss at lawmen turned outlaws. A refreshing new perspective on some of the most infamous reprobates of the Great Plains.
