Overview

Outlaw tales of the Wild West are well known. Less so are the lives of the wicked women and deadly damsels of the Macabre Midwest.

Award-winning author Chris Enss goes behind the lipstick and petticoats to reveal the real women who outran the law and upended gender stereotypes across America's Heartland. Meet Flora Mundis, expert horse thief and jailbreaker; murderess Elizabeth Reed, the first and only woman hanged in Illinois; Belle Black and Jennie Freeman, who shot their way through holdups alongside the men of the Wyatt-Black Gang; and Anne Cook, bootlegger and madam, who killed her own daughter in cold blood. See the muzzle flash as Poker Alice guns down a gambler gone mad, and hide out after a bank heist with Patricia Cherrington and the Dillinger Gang.

Illustrated with historical photographs, Bedside Book of Bad Girls: Outlaw Women of the Midwest uncovers the true lives long veiled by the glamor of dime novels and sensational tabloid accounts. Cozy up (if you dare) with these women, both sensuous and sinister, as they rampage across the Midwest.
