Ruthless killers, cruel predators, bold outlaws, unprincipled scoundrels and rowdy misfits. Those larger-than-life characters and supporting cast staged a dramatic, real-life performance on frontier Michigan. The stories of the most colorful and outrageous are told between the covers of this book. Descriptions include a swashbuckling Lake Michigan pirate, a brutal brawler who gnashed opponents with a double set of teeth, the ogre of Seney, who would eat "anything for money.
