Meet Oklahoma's Wild Ones
and#160;
From Muskogee to Ingalls, Tulsa to Tahlequah, the frontier towns of Oklahoma were populated by some of the toughest and most dangerous characters in the West. Ned Christie resisted arrest by holing up in his makeshift log fortress. Henry Starrand#8217;s long bank robbing career took him all the way from the old West to the age of automobiles. And inept crook Elmer McCurdy, after a train holdup gone wrong, finally found work that suited himand#151;as a dummy on display in a wax museum.
and#160;
From The Doolin and Dalton Gang to Belle Starr, Bud Coe to the Verdigris Kid, read about the most notorious desperados in the history of the Sooner State. Through these astonishing true stories, Outlaw Tales of Oklahoma introduces you to a state you thought you knewand#151;and a West wilder than youand#8217;ve ever imagined.

Synopsis:

Massacres, mayhem, and mischief fill the pages of Outlaw Tales of Oklahoma. 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.
