    A decent read Most of the outlaws shared similar traits robbing trains, bank and killing people Alabama certainly had their fair share much of it occurring shortly after the Civil War.

    Brief survey of several different scoundrels with ties to Alabama, most notable of which were Frank and Jesse James Each chapter reads like a newspaper article, with a short obituary style introduction, and then a biographical sketch of the events leading up to the demise or disappearance of the subject.
