Texas is known for producing and attracting vicious outlaws. Machine Gun Kelly, Billy the Kidd, and Clyde Barrow are just a few. These criminals terrorized civilians, inspiring both fear and awe and creating legends that would be handed down through generations. Tales of the state's gunfights, robberies, heinous ne'er-do-wells, and noble lawmen bring to life a time before the West was tamed.
During the wild days of Texas some of the events that occurred were stranger and more interesting than fiction. While staying at a hotel, John Wesley Hardin killed a man for snoring. Robert Clay Allison killed a looter for breaking one of his mother's favorite pitchers. Even the lawmen of this time period were not always heroic. Henry Brown, a former deputy sheriff, took time off from his position as a city marshal in order to rob a bank and was later killed by irate citizens. Sheriff John Larn killed a half-deaf suspect who did not halt when commanded.
The profiles in this reference include outlaws, gangsters, lawmen and a few Texas feudalists, Rio Grande border warriors, and Indian agitators. Also included is a chronology of well-known crimes and a locale list of notorious events.
