THE GREAT AMERICAN OUTLAW
A Legacy of Fact and Fiction
By Frank Richard Prassel
Often we romanticize outlaws and gangsters. Prassel separates fact from fiction with an
enjoyable examination of the concept of outlawry from Robin Hood, Pancho Villa, and
Billy the Kid to more modern personalities such as John Dillinger, Al Capone, Clyde
Barrow and Bonnie Parker. A separate chapter on molls, plus equal treatment in the histories
of gangs, traces women's involvement in outlaw activities.
Holy Man of the Oglala
By Michael F. Steltenkamp
Based on extensive interviews with Lucy Looks Twice, the
holy man's last surviving child, and others who knew him
personally, Steltenkamp sheds new light on the life of one
of the world's best-known religious figures. The story
here rounds out the portrait of this famous holy person,
as it reveals his conversion to Catholicism and offers for
the first time some telling facts about his life.

By Richard White
"An excellent new synthesis of Western history.

BATTLES AND SKIRMISHES OF
THE GREAT SIOUX WAR, 1876-1877
The Military View
Compiled, edited and annotated
by Jerome A. Greene
These accounts as they were observed by participating
officers, enlisted men, scouts, surgeons, and newspaper
correspondents-some told immediately after the
encounters and some set down in reminiscences years
later-are important and little-known sources of information
about the war. They give a compelling sense of immediacy
to the actions.
