Thank God—a book that looks past Tombstone to share the exploits of the West!

Respected historian Dugan tells the story of a small-time Midwestern crook, forgotten to history.  Rande (an alias) was a head case who enjoyed killing lawmen, and he did more than his share. It’s a fascinating story—including the hard case’s end, either suicide or some jailhouse justice. Rande wasn’t brilliant, a bandit or notorious, but he was very deadly.
