Publisher Comments:

Meet the Most Notorious Arizonans Who Ever Lived

After too much whiskey, Buckskin Frank Leslie would stand his wife against a wall and shoot around her silhouette. Few jails could hold Augustine Chacón, who boasted of killing more than fifty men, but in the end he could not escape the gallows. The Apache Kid became one of the most feared outlaws in Arizona history, but was his reputation the result of misunderstanding between two cultures? Burt Alvord was the deputy sheriff of Cochise County—and a criminal mastermind. 

 
All this and more can be found in Outlaw Tales of Arizona, which introduces more than a dozen of the most dramatic events, and the most daring and despicable desperados, in the history of the Grand Canyon State.

Synopsis:

Massacres, mayhem, and mischief fill the pages of Outlaw Tales of Arizona, with compelling legends of Arizona Territory's most despicable desperadoes. 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 Arizona's infamous reprobates.

Synopsis:

True stories of the Grand Canyon state's most infamous robbers, rustlers, and bandits.
