The Last of the Dalton Gang By: L. E. Schuck The Last of the Dalton Gang is a biography of a career criminal who was tutored by older thieves on the art of stealing tires from boxcars on trains. He learned well. He eventually became the mastermind behind thefts of tires and other valuables from warehouses, railroad shipping containers, and boxcars. During Dalton’s forty-plus years of crime, he spent time in three different federal prisons and many state institutions. Dalton recounts many of his crimes and includes several he was never charged for. During the author’s career in law enforcement, he was involved in several of the cases where John Dalton and his gang members were arrested. In fact, over the years trying to build cases against John Dalton, the author finds it unique that he found himself working with Dalton to tell the story about his life and efforts trying not to get caught.

Several encyclopedias overview the contemporary system of criminal justice in America, but full understanding of current social problems and contemporary strategies to deal with them can come only with clear appreciation of the historical underpinnings of those problems. Thus, this five-volume work surveys the history and philosophy of crime, punishment, and criminal justice institutions in America from colonial times to the present. It covers the whole of the criminal justice system, from crimes, law enforcement and policing, to courts, corrections and human services. Among other things, this encyclopedia: explicates philosophical foundations underpinning our system of justice; charts changing patterns in criminal activity and subsequent effects on legal responses; identifies major periods in the development of our system of criminal justice; and explores in the first four volumes - supplemented by a fifth volume containing annotated primary documents - evolving debates and conflicts on how best to address issues of crime and punishment. Its signed entries in the first four volumes--supplemented by a fifth volume containing annotated primary documents--provide the historical context for students to better understand contemporary criminological debates and the contemporary shape of the U.S. system of law and justice.

The Wild West: 365 Days is a day-by-day adventure that tells the stories of pioneers and cowboys, gold rushes and saloon shoot-outs in America's frontier. The lure of land rich in minerals, fertile for farming, and plentiful with buffalo bred an all-out obsession with heading westward. The Wild West: 365 Days takes the reader back to these booming frontier towns that became the stuff of American legend, breeding characters such as Butch Cassidy and Jesse James. Author Michael Wallis spins a colorful narrative, separating myth from fact, in 365 vignettes. The reader will learn the stories of Davy Crockett, Wild Bill Hickok, and Annie Oakley; travel to the O.K. Corral and Dodge City; ride with the Pony Express; and witness the invention of the Colt revolver. The images are drawn from Robert G. McCubbin's extensive collection of Western memorabilia, encompassing rare books, photographs, ephemera, and artifacts, including Billy the Kid's knife.

Two classic accounts of some of the Old West’s most infamous outlaws—the Dalton Gang and “Black Jack” Ketchum—in one volume. Being an outlaw in the Old West was a dangerous, grisly business—twenty-three gunshot wounds and living to tell the tale, falling out of a moving train, decapitation due to a hanging gone wrong, life on the lam, horse thievery, illegal alcohol trade, and more. This new volume collects two long out-of-print classic works—The Dalton Brothers and Their Astounding Career of Crime (first published in 1892 featuring “numerous illustrations reproduced from photographs taken on the spot”), about the incredible criminal exploits of the Dalton Gang as told by an anonymous “Eye Witness,” and Black Jack Ketchum: Last of the Hold Up Kings (first published in 1955), about Thomas Edward “Black Jack” Ketchum of the infamous Hole-in-the-Wall Gang as told by Ed Bartholomew. These notorious outlaws of the Old West gained their infamy robbing trains, and all, except for one, died as violently as they lived—two of the Daltons during a bank robbery in 1892, a third in 1894, and Black Jack Ketchum in 1901 by hanging. These two classic accounts are brought together for the first time in this paperback collection of colorful stories about the two gangs. This is a must-read for anyone interested in the true stories of the Old West and nineteenth-century criminals.
