The Crime Buff's Guide to Outlaw Texas

(2010)
A non fiction book by

 
 
A fascinating journey through the Lone Star State's unruly past --with maps, photos, and more

Texas rightfully claims a celebrated place in the "wildest' West of both myth and reality--which makes it truly stranger than fiction that The Crime Buff's Guide to Outlaw Texas is the first-ever travel guide to the many sites related to the Lone Star State's renowned rambunctious past, complete with GPS coordinates that put you at the scene of the action.

From outlaws like Sam Bass and John Wesley Hardin to Bonnie & Clyde and Houston's notorious Candy Man killer (so hated that he was buried secretly by the prison warden under a fictional name in a never-disclosed gravesite), Texas has dozens of places where true-crime buffs can actually stand close to history. For many readers, the attraction to these sites--some well-known, some obscured by time--is irresistible.

Written with the same fast-paced, gripping style that marked the author's widely praised earlier work, The Crime Buff's Guide to Outlaw Texas is an indispensable resource for both criminal-history enthusiasts and travelers. Each site description includes a concise summary of the location's significance, historical context, maps, directions, and photos.
