Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Meet the most notorious Washingtonians who ever lived.

Today known largely for its beauty, civility, and prosperity, Washington did, once upon a time, attract its share of no-good varmints and others living outside the law. Yet many of the outrageous stories from its past are not widely known. Now Outlaw Tales of Washington uncovers historically accurate tales of twenty of the most dramatic events, and the most daring and despicable desperados, in the history of the Evergreen State.

Lawrence Kelly smuggled everything from illegal immigrants to opium. The radical town of Home took .on the system—and took off its clothes. George Young was the ringleader of a gang of cattle rustlers. Bill Miner was the mastermind behind a series of train robberies. Della Totten and Hannah Beebe attacked a trespassing neighbor with an ax and rifle. All this and more is yours for the reading in this absorbing collection

Book News Annotation:

Due to its proximity to an international border, rugged landscape, and minimal population, Washington state attracted quite a few outlaws during the second half of the nineteenth century. This book by Gibson, author of It Happened in Nevada, tells the stories of 20 of the most interesting Evergreen State outlaws from the period. These relatively unexplored portions of Washington state history are presented in highly accessible narratives appealing to general readers with an interest in Pacific Northwest history.

Synopsis:

A refreshing new perspective on some of the most infamous reprobates of the Northwest.
