Overview


Meet Oklahoma's Wild Ones
 

From Muskogee to Ingalls, Tulsa to Tahlequah, the frontier towns of Oklahoma were populated by some of the toughest and most dangerous characters in the West. Ned Christie resisted arrest by holing up in his makeshift log fortress. Henry Starr’s long bank robbing career took him all the way from the old West to the age of automobiles. And inept crook Elmer McCurdy, after a train holdup gone wrong, finally found work that suited him—as a dummy on display in a wax museum.
 
From The Doolin and Dalton Gang to Belle Starr, Bud Coe to the Verdigris Kid, read about the most notorious desperados in the history of the Sooner State. Through these astonishing true stories, Outlaw Tales of Oklahoma introduces you to a state you thought you knew—and a West wilder than you’ve ever imagined.

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
Although the subtitle casts a bright light on the Sooner State's darkest corners, it only barely reflects the extent of Oklahoma mayhem described by author Robert Barr Smith. Outlaw Tales of Oklahoma features a despicable but enthralling assortment of cattle rustlers, killers, train robbers, crooked sheriffs, and lowlife con men. An absorbing history of recidivist reprobates.
