Overview

Award-winning author Chris Enss goes behind the lipstick
and petticoats to reveal the real women who outran the law
and upended gender stereotypes across America’s Heartland.
Meet Flora Mundis, expert horse thief and jailbreaker;
murderess Elizabeth Reed, the first and only woman hanged
in Illinois; Belle Black and Jennie Freeman, who shot their way
through holdups alongside the men of the Wyatt-Black Gang;
and Anne Cook, bootlegger and madam, who killed her own
daughter in cold blood. See the muzzle flash as Poker Alice
guns down a gambler gone mad, and hide out after a bank
heist with Patricia Cherrington and the Dillinger Gang.
Illustrated with historical photographs, Bedside Book of Bad
Girls: Outlaw Women of the Midwest uncovers the true lives
long veiled by the glamor of dime novels and sensational tabloid
accounts. Cozy up (if you dare) with these women, both
sensuous and sinister, as they rampage across the Midwest.
