Item Description...
Historic desperadoes tell their tales of holdups, shootouts and desperate flights from the law in this chronicle illustrated with many rare photographs. From the famous 1892 shootout at Young's cabin as told by Chris Evans--a murderer, train robber and fugitive--and his partner John Sontag and the hanging of the notorious Jim Stuart by San Francisco vigilantes determined to retake their city from hordes of Australian convicts, robbers, and killers to the ill-starred adventures of Tom Bell, Tiburcio Vasquez, and Charles Dorsey and the harrowing and sometimes hilarious antics of the California highwaymen stage robbers Jim Smith and Dick Fellows, readers will vicariously experience the riveting lives of another time period.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
OK for Californians  Nov 28, 2000
Written in a rather amateur manner, but with loads of pictures and drawings, this book would appeal to people who are familiar with the area that these bandits roamed. One thing that really bothered me: Mr. Secrest references "Black Bart" nine times, in sentences such as "but he was no... Black Bart", or someone was rumored to have hung out with Black Bart, but never does he give you the actual story of Black Bart! When many characters are mentioned, its as if you were supposed to already know who they are. For instance: "Badly wounded in the aborted raid, Emmett admitted that his brothers had done the Alila job." Who is Emmett?? This is the first time he is mentioned, and it took me a minute to figure out that he must be one of the Dalton gang. That aside, this WAS an enjoyable book to read, and I will keep it in my library for future reference.
An outstanding contribution to California history.  Jul 3, 2000
Chris Evans and seven other early outlaws of the old west provide first-hand experiences of holdups, shootouts, and confrontations wit the law in California Desperadoes, an outstanding collection of true stories by California desperados. Add vintage illustrations and black and white photos to the text and you have a fine piece of California history.
