Great Train Robberies of the Old West

greattrainrobWhat a wonderful little gem of a book this is!  For those who just want the action-packed, train-robbing stories of the Old West, it’s all here.  This book holds no fluff, but it does pack the history and thrill of yesterday’s bad guy train robbers.

Included in the book are the robberies committed by lesser known outlaws, yet just as compelling are those by the Ketchum Gang, Sam Bass and by Butch Cassidy and his Wild Bunch in Tipton and Wilcox, Wyoming. “Think ya used enough dynamite there, Butch?” Okay, so I got way too caught up in this book, but it’s such a great read! —Linda Wommack
