Queen of the Outlaws


Here is a tale of the Legend of Belle Starr, aka Queen of the Outlaws. Born Feb.5, 1848 and died Feb. 3, 1889 at the age of 41........almost. This was a really good little book, especially since it is centered probably within a 50 miles radius of where I live. So the town names, etc. are very familiar. She was a pretty tough cookie! She was married several times, lived her latter years around the Canadian River in Cherokee land(Oklahoma was all Indian territory at that time), had 2 children by different husbands, was quite a bank robber and excellent shot. Her daughter was a famous Madam in Fort Smith, AK, following in some of her mother's footsteps!

Anyway, for a little history and an interesting read, give it a try. Author is Stoney Hardcastle.

That's all I know today. Until next time, take care and God's blessings to you.
