Description

"Distributed by the University of Nebraska Press for Caxton Press"

Omaha, Nebraska, is a laid-back city in America s heartland. In the nineteenth century, however, it had a very different reputation. Omaha grew from a speculative scheme in 1854 to a booming city. Along the way there were scores of great stories.

It requires but little if any, stretch of the imagination to regard Omaha as a cesspool of iniquity, for it is given up to lawlessness and is overrun with a horde of fugitives from justice and dangerous men of all kinds who carry things with a high hand and a loose rein. . . . If you want to find a rogue s rookery, go to Omaha. Kansas City newspaper."
