Meet South Dakota's Wild Ones
 
From Deadwood to Aberdeen, Vermillion to Belle Fourche, the frontier towns of South Dakota were populated by some of the toughest and most dangerous characters in the West. Chief Two Sticks led a starving band of rebels on a desperate path of destruction. Bud Stevenss murder of a cattle kings son rang a death knell for an entire town. And bank robbers Stelle and Bennie Dickinson did their best to become South Dakotas very own Bonnie and Clyde.
 
From Wild Bill Hickock to Lame Johnny, Jack McCall to Lee “Curly” Grimes, read about the most notorious desperados in the history of the Mount Rushmore State. Through these astonishing true stories, Outlaw Tales of South Dakota introduces you to a state you thought you knew— and a West wilder than youve ever imagined.

Book News Annotation:

Griffith, an independent author who lives in the Black Hills of South Dakota, has written historical profiles on the state's most infamous desperados such as Will Bill Hickok, Chief Two Sticks and bank robbers Stelle and Bennie Dickinson. Written for general audiences with an interest in the history of this region, this volume covers a wide selection of "cop killers, common crooks, muggers and their molls" from the last half of the 19th century through the first half of the 20th century. Historical maps and photographs detailing these notorious outlaws and their crimes are included. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
