First edition. 8vo. Cloth, 285 pp., foreword, illustrated, appendices. The author is a lifelong resident of St. Louis, Missouri and a noted authority on Wild West outlaws. From the Civil War and their battles against the Union, with Quantrill and his band of guerrillas, to the Lawrence raid in Kansas, to their first bank robbery in Liberty, Missouri, the Youngers were perceived as either heroes or outlaws by the public. This account continues after the Northfield, Minnesota raid by the James gang and the Youngers and through Cole's and James's years in a Minnesota prison to Cole Younger's fight to adapt to life after his pardon. As new, unread copy in dust jacket.
