Desperadoes of the Ozarks
By Wood, Larry        
Paperback - English

This fascinating read collects true stories of desperadoes in the Ozarks region between the 1860s and 1950. The Missouri Kid, Bonnie and Clyde, and many more are featured.


-Larry Wood's twenty-one true stories of Ozarks' desperadoes and deeds between 1860 and 1950 are interesting without being sensationalized. He continues in yet another volume to mine the rich vein of bad men-and succeeds because of solid research, attention to detail, and a knack for intuitive tale-telling.-
-Fred Pfitser, editor, Ozarks Mountaineer

Notorious characters and sensational incidents were teeming in the Ozarks immediately after the Civil War and for the next one hundred years. The towns of Joplin and Granby, Missouri, probably had more murderous violence than any comparably populated region in the country. In this selection of condensed historical events, gunplay erupts with alarming regularity, thousands of spectators flock to the drama of executions and lynchings, and vengeance and greed take their toll on the region.
