KIRKUS REVIEW

This carefully documented book will appeal to Western buffs and serious students of the old West alike. The author holds the theory that the organized gangs of robbers and killers who roamed the American Southwest from the 1860s to the 1930s all had their roots in a common school of crime founded by Q by Quantrill and helped by Belle Starr. From this school, numerous outlaws founded other gangs, the line ending in 1934 when Pretty Boy loyd was killed.
