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.

"I know you love Western stories. Everybody loves Western stories. This book is full of them. Forget Texas, Arizona, Nevada etc. Nebraska had her wild and woolly Western towns, too. Like Ogallala, North Platte, Kearney, Omaha and Broken Bow."—Broox Sledge, Neshoba Democrat
