Welcome to 1880s Black Hills where, as author Barbara Fifer writes, you can find gunmen who were good with their weapons, robbers who did everything wrong, and women who made their livings beyond the pale of respectability. Meet robber Laughing Sam Hartman or law-abiding bad boy George Armstrong Custer. Walk on the dark side with killer Persimmon Bill Chambers or wild woman Lurline Monte Verde. With an introduction by Jerry Bryant of the Adams House Museum, Bad Boys of Black Hills introduces the readers to a host of rowdies ranging from madams to poker players, from tall-tale tellers to killers.
The Buffalo Bill Center of the West is a nonprofit museum that works to preserve Western stories just like these. You can support the museum by shopping for Wild West books and other Old West gifts from Points West Market. Every dollar goes right to the museum — we thank you for your contribution.
