Bandit Years: A Gathering of Wolves
Live again the days of the Old West when travel was not only rough but dangerous! The days when outlaws lurked behind boulders and along remote trails, ready to trap and rob the unwary drivers and their passengers. Billy LeRoy, Bill Miner, Charley Allison and Hamilton White III all shared a common bond of contempt for the law-abiding life, preferring to become stagecoach robbers. BANDIT YEARS profiles these four unforgettable outlaws who made the Barlow-Sanderson Overland Mail their special target. BOOKLIST reported: "Though the major events detailed in this book all took place during a 10-month period in southern Colorado and northern New Mexico, they provide a sound overview of the predatory habits of western outlaws." Mark Dugan, a graduate of North Carolina State University, is a writer and researcher specializing in the history of the American West.
