From the Border Wars to the gangs of Bushwhackers, Missouri’s reign of vigilante justice during the nineteenth century is unparalleled by any other state in the nation. Missouri marked the boundary of eastern civilization and was a stronghold of fierce independence—a conflict often leading to bloody shoot-outs and rebel justice.

Packed with stories of popular gunslingers like Wyatt Earp, Wild Bill Hickok, and Jesse James, local historian Joe Johnston’s action-packed read will be of interest to crime enthusiasts and historians alike.
