History’s Most Notorious Outlaws, Bandits & Gangsters
By Robert Barr Smith and Laurence J. Yadon
Early Oklahoma was a haven, a breeding ground, for desperadoes and delinquency. Violent outlaws found the state to be perfect for their death trap battles against U.S. Marshals. For example, the infamous Doolin gang gunfight at the OK Hotel left five dead. Killers like Bible-quoting choir leader Deacon Jim Miller wreaked havoc in his wake. Gunslinger femme fatale Belle Star specialized in horse theft and then there were the train robbers and bank robbers. Oklahoma had more than its fair share of outlaw activity.
