Meet the Most Notorious Missourians Who Ever Lived
 
From Kansas City to St. Louis, Missouri never had to settle for your average everyday gunmen—not when it had such outlaws as Jesse James and Cole Younger to call its own. That’s not to mention the Turk brothers’ Slicker War and the Young brothers’ shootout, which helped earn the Ozarks’ reputation as a hotbed of vigilantism.
 
All this and more—including Missouri’s own mini version of the Civil War and the Union Station Massacre—is yours for the reading in Outlaw Tales of Missouri, which introduces twelve of the most dramatic events, and the most daring and despicable desperados, in the history of the Show Me State.

Editorial Reviews

Even after he finished researching It Happened in Missouri, author Sean McLachlan realized that he hadn't even begun to exhaust his home state's fascinating history. His Outlaw Tales of Missouri brandishes a full rogue's gallery of disreputable killers, crooks, and miscreants from the Show Me State. Among those starring in these infamous tales are train robber Jesse James and bushwhacker Cole Younger. An entertaining batch of bad guys.
