Meet Oregon's Wild Ones

In ten gripping chapters, Outlaw Tales of Oregon digs its spurs into some of the most compelling criminal scenarios in the Wild West.

Discover how the McCartys made bank robbing a family business. Read how a range war between sheep and cattle ranchers in the early 1900s carpeted Oregon's high plains with hundreds of dead sheep. And learn how the horrific slaughter of Chinese miners in Hell's Canyon had repercussions that are still echoing today.
