Meet Idaho's Wild Ones
 
From Florence to Lewiston, Boise to Grangeville, the frontier towns of Idaho were populated by some of the toughest and most dangerous characters in the West. Serial killer Lyda Lewis poisoned her unsuspecting husbands to cash in on their life insurance policies. The Eddy and Splawn families created counterfeit U.S. gold pieces. And “Diamondfield” Jack Davis, a notorious killer, even shot a childs dog.
 
From Butch Cassidy to George Levy, Harry Orchard to Caleb Lyon, read about the most notorious desperados in the history of the Gem State. Through these astonishing true stories, Outlaw Tales of Idaho introduces you to a state you thought you knew—and a West wilder than you've ever imagined.

Book News Annotation:

Written for general audiences and Old West history enthusiasts, this volume contains a dozen stories about such infamous characters as the gold counterfeiters from the Eddy and Splawn families, serial killer Lydia Lewis and gunfighter and outlaw Butch Cassidy. The author includes historical photographs and a map of Idaho that details the locations mentioned in the text. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
