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 himas a dummy on display in a wax museum.

Through these astonishing true stories, Outlaw Tales of Oklahoma introduces you to a state you thought you knewand a West wilder than you’ve ever imagined.
