Outlaw Tales of Kansas : True Stories of the Sunflower State's Most Infamous Crooks, Culprits, and
About this item
From Dodge City to Abilene and beyond, Kansas in its early years was one fine place for outlaws, and one of the most violent places in America’s history. Consider the exploits of Jesse James—a sociopathic killer or a Robin Hood who redistributed Union wealth? Or those of Big Nose Kate, whose true identity was much nobler than her reputation as Doc Holliday’s longtime companion. That’s not to mention the dangerous inmate who became the learned Bird Man of Kansas—a renowned canary expert whose life story became a hit film. Outlaw Tales of Kansas offers a refreshing new perspective on some of the most infamous reprobates of the Midwest.
