The only thing wilder than Oklahoma in the late nineteenth century are the tales that continue to surround it. In the days of the Wild West, Oklahoma was teeming with assassins, guerillas, hijackers, kidnappers, gangs, and misfits of every size and shape imaginable. Featuring such legendary characters as Billy the Kid, Bonnie and Clyde, Machine Gun Kelly, Belle Starr, and Pretty Boy Floyd, this book combines recorded fact with romanticized legend, allowing the reader to decide how much to believe.
The Lone Star State 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 and kidnappings, heinous ne’er-do-wells, and noble lawmen bring to life a time before the West was tamed.
Swampmaster Bejeaux sets off in search of “somewheres dat I can git me some peace an’ quiet.” Along the way he meets several of his swamp friends who help save his hide as he encounters hunting camps, some black magic, and even the feared loup-garou.

This interesting history was motivated by Longfellow's beautiful poem Evangeline (published by Pelican), which is about an Acadian woman who was separated from her love during their difficult deportation from Nova Scotia. George P. Bible felt it necessary to provide the true background information about the Acadians that inspired Longfellow to write his tribute.
