Publisher's Summary

Horse thieves, gunslingers, fighters for freedom.... The Wild West truly had the potential for creating incredible stories - including those in this book. 

Did you dream of grabbing your cowboy hat, jumping onto a horse, and running wild in the Western wilderness?

Do you love the classic American Westerns and their colorful, charming characters?

Have you ever wanted to know more about those mysterious figures who fought for their freedom, wealth, and position on the prairies?

Well, hold on to your hat, because this book is just for you. The enthralling collection consists of six unique characters whose lives seem pulled right out of a fictional story - but they are all true. Impressive feats, legends, and brazen acts - they are all here.

The Wild West was a troublesome area for a long, long time. Hard conditions brought hard people - not everyone was suited to live there, but those who did had a choice - the boring everyday life or a life of an outlaw, filled with daring escapes, adventures, and thievery. If it was you, which one would you choose?

Would you become the leader of a gang, robbing trains and banks? Or maybe you would be a fighter for freedom who was forced to reach for extraordinary measures? Or a criminal mastermind with a number of cohorts working for you?

In Outlaws of the Wild West, you will find out:

  • How important family values were and ties to some of those outlaws 
  • Who the real face behind the mask of Zorro was
  • How a well-educated one became a leader of a ring of horse thieves 
  • Who survived being shot 23 times and made a decent life for themselves 
  • Who was dubbed the Bandit Queen 
  • What happened during one of the most famous bank robberies of all times 
  • Which outlaw was so polite he came back to prison in the morning 
  • Who was called “Dingus” because he was a murderer who disliked cursing
  • And much more

“They are just criminals,” you may think. “They killed people and robbed them.”

Well, it may be true, but remember - some of them fought for more reasons than just amassing wealth....The mysterious figures hide more secrets than we think. Many of them met the end we expect them to, but not all of them.... Some had surprising moral codes, some even played the piano and learned classical languages. Some were the product of their upbringing, while some surprised everyone with their ways.

Find out the hidden treasures of the lives of America’s most notorious criminals! What makes a minister’s son turn into a criminal? Whose criminal career was short but so significant that he was immortalized in a book?

Dust your cowboy hat and ready the whip - click “Buy Now” above and join the gang of America’s most notorious outlaws.

Excelente!

Great lil book! Very interesting and well read. I live in Montana and love the outlaw history. Narrator was perfect. Great voice and cadence for a western book. He sounds like an authentic western Gringo because he pronounces Spanish words perfect! I thoroughly enjoyed the book I just wish it was longer.

Wow.

That was intense. I don’t know what I was expecting but it wasn’t that. I loved it. I would have liked this story to be a little bit longer as it let me wanting more. The audio narration was great.

Powerful and Chilling

Different crimes and serial killers are presented understandably. They were not all well known but made me identify and realize the complexity of their crimes.

Quite interesting

The narrator did a great job of going through the book; although it was odd listening to a chipper voice describe a brutal murder.

Just amazing

I listened to this all in one sitting and thought it was really informative. I enjoy learning about different crimes and analyzing what had possibly made that person do something so horrific and this book definitely gives you an idea of what might have led these murders to do what they did...
