Outlaw Tales of Oklahoma: True Stories of the Sooner State's Most Infamous Crooks, Culprits, and Cutthroats by Robert Barr Smith


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.
