In The Shadow of Death Alley

A Novel of Emmett Dalton


  • ISBN-10: 1432780980

  • ISBN-13: 978-1432780982

Of all the outlaw gangs of the Old West, perhaps none was more notorious or feared than the Dalton Gang. Known for their daring attempt to rob two banks at once in broad daylight, the gang was wiped out on that day when the townspeople of Coffeyville Kansas took up arms against them. All of them were killed--except for one, young Emmett Dalton, only 21 years old. Based on historical fact, this novel tells the story of the gang and its legacy through Emmett's eyes.



The Last Desperado


  • ISBN-10: 1478725443

  • ISBN-13: 978-1478725442

In the last days of the Old West, outlaw gangs ran wild in the Twin Territories encompassing Kansas and Oklahoma, robbing trains, banks, stores and stagecoaches. Out of the ashes of the Dalton Gang's downfall in 1892 rose the infamous Wild Bunch, led by easygoing cowboy-turned-outlaw Bill Doolin. The Last Desperado chronicles Doolin's compelling journey from the cattle ranches to the outlaw trail as his fame grows to legendary proportions-and as he struggles to reconcile his life of crime with his desire for a peaceful home life with his wife and son. Meticulously researched and based upon historical fact, The Last Desperado brings to life a cunning, intelligent and fascinating man, at heart a simple cowboy, who managed to make an indelible mark on the face of history and become the stuff of legend.
