Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Historian Larry Brown once again uses his incredible research skills to bring the Old West to life. In this third volume of Brown's territorial crime series, he introduces us to the twenty-three women who served time in Old Wyoming's penitentiary.<P>What did these women, wearing frills, lace, and their best bonnets for their mug shots, do to deserve time behind bars? Anna Bruce baked poison into her father's plum pie; Anna Trout abandoned her grandson in a train depot; Stella Gatlin found her kleptomania didn't mix with her work as a postmaster; Eliza "Big Jack" Stewart shot a man in the neck at a dance.<P>The photographs in this book alone make it worth the price.
