After growing up on a horse ranch and riding gymkhana and horse shows, old west history research librarian, Linda Aksomitis, could never get enough Western biographies.

Indeed, the badlands that spread out from the United States/Canada border are full of many untold stories of the old west that Linda found fascinating. For decades, there was plenty a horse thief and outlaw looking to rustle cattle who made a home in the buttes, ravines and canyons of what many called The Devil's Playground back at the turn of the 20th century.

By then, many of the infamous riders of the Outlaw Trail had been locked up or gunned down or chased over the Canadian border by sheriffs and Pinkerton men. Those who remained continued to hide out in Station No. 1 of the Outlaw Trail stealing cattle and horses from ranchers, then running them across the border to sell.

Some of the outlaws you'll meet in these pages are Dutch Henry, Red Nelson or Sam Kelly as he was more commonly known, Frank Jones, Bloody Knife, Kid Trailer and others. You'll also find photography of the Big Muddy badlands, Sam Kelly caves, and even the millenia old landmark, Castle Butte, taken on Linda's many visits. So get your own copy and kick back to take a visit to the last five-minutes of the wild, wild west of North America.
