Klappentext

A badman is not necessarily a bad man, but he is not a man to mess with. He might be a killer, a con artist, or even a Texas Ranger with his own ideas about law enforcement; or he might just be "wuthless". C. F. Eckhardt tells the stories your teacher never told you about Texas outlaws.

Combining history with lively storytelling, Eckhardt adds new details to our knowledge of such figures as Judge Roy Bean, John Wesley Hardin, and Bonnie and Clyde, and introduces us to others previously known only in their own neighborhoods: the murderous Yokums of the Big Thicket, the feuding madams of El Paso's brothel district, and the tragic Papworths of Erath County.



Zusammenfassung
A badman is not necessarily a bad man, but he is not a man to mess with. A bad woman might be a criminal too, or she might just be one who didn't conform to accepted notions of womanly conduct in her time and place. This tells the stories about Texas outlaws.
