Overview

The Comstock Lode, still the richest mineral discovery in the history of the world, brought a rare assortment of people to Nevada in the 1860s: Cold-blooded Sam Brown sneered while cutting out a man's heart but screamed in terror when the tables turned. Andrew Jackson Davis who hobnobbed with community leaders in the daytime and robbed them at night. Nicanor Rodrigues, born a Spanish hidalgo, was a fearless and imaginative robber who double-crossed his most loyal supporters.

 

Outlaw Tales of Nevada uncovers twelve true stories of some of the Silver State's most scandalous events and most fascinating bandits. From the first train robbery in the West to the perils of Rattlesnake Dick, these lively accounts portray lawless Nevada's colorful and raucous past.
