New Mexico is the home (and final resting place) of some of the frontier's baddest dudes. Read about Black Jack Ketchum, who robbed trains, banks and stagecoaches around turn of the previous century, terrorizing the whole state until that day he tried to rob the Colorado & Southern train without the help of his fellow gang members. Clay Allison, aka the "Gentleman Outlaw," was a respectful Tennessee native, a Confederate veteran who settled in Colfax County after the war. But when he had a few too many belts of whiskey, he became lethal company. Read about his drunk-driving accident behind a team of horses, and how his bravado was his undoing. Learn how Hoodoo Brown -- Justice, Coroner and Mayor of East Las Vegas -- turned into an adulterous murderer, and figure out whether or not he got away with his crimes. These and many more outlaws are profiled for the first time in an all-new history compilation about New Mexico's vilest outlaws.
