Meet Texas's Wild Ones

 

From Austin to Pecos, Jacksboro to Houston, the frontier towns of Texas were populated by some of the toughest and most dangerous characters in the West. Jim Miller went to church, left early to shoot his brother-in-law in the head, and returned before the service was over. Myra Belle Shirley helped her husband lead one of Texas’s most notorious stage robberies. And Bill Longley was reportedly hanged three times—and survived.

 

From John Larn to Sostenes L’Archévèque, Butch Cassidy to John Wesley Hardin, read about the most notorious desperados in the history of the Lone Star State. Through these astonishing true stories, Outlaw Tales of Texas introduces you to a state you thought you knew—and a West wilder than you’ve ever imagined.
