Wild Towns of Nebraska (Paperback)
Nebraska's early towns were not settled by peaceful, law-abiding citizens. Nebraska became a home, or a stopping point for every kind of person that had an eye on the West. Many of those would be miners, ranchers, swindlers, gamblers, prostitutes or trappers, who couldn't quite keep themselves out of trouble. This book tells their stories.
