Description


The fascinating history of horse theft and horse recovery. Because of the horse's essential function for many American families, horse theft was a lucrative business venture for many outlaws in the country's frontier days. This fascinating exposition details the history of organized horse-thief gangs from the colonial era through World War II. It also features the history of many anti-horse theft groups, some of which still exist. This illuminating book discusses the thieves, their pursuers, and their methods in great detail.
