True Stories of the Beehive State's most Infamous Crooks, culprits, and Cutthroats
Meet the most Notorious Utahns Who Ever Lived
Massacres, mayhem, and mischief fill the pages of the Outlaw Tales of Utah. Meet the Wild bunch, outlaws who sought refuge between heists hanging out and hiding out in Utah. Butch Cassidy, its leader, once paid a farmer's mortgage and then robbed a banker to get the money back. The Sundance Kid gained a reputation as a gunfighter - without firing a shot - Etta Place, first lady of the Wild bunch, is a mystery we know almost nothing about -- or do we? Get to know other shady Utah characters, from Bible-reading wife and mother Elizabeth Bassett, who stole cattle at night, to former-slave-turned-rustler Isom Dart, who saved the life of the deputy who arrested him -- and was set free.
All this and more is yours for the reading in Outlaw Tales of Utah, which introduces sixteen of the most dramatic events, and the most daring despicable desperados, in the history of the Beehive State.
