    DescriptionOutlaw, gang member, and loving husband, Emmett Dalton remains a significant figure in American Old West history. His scandalous career of thievery included the ill-fated raid in Coffeyville, Kansas. When the Dalton Gang attempted to rob two banks at once, a deadly shootout ensued, leaving Emmett Dalton with more than twenty gunshot wounds and a life sentence in the Kansas State Penitentiary. This autobiography describes Dalton's everyday life as an outlaw. In it, he recalls such adolescent memories as hearing stories of the Younger gang, his first train robbery and feelings of exultation, visiting his mother, and courting Julia Johnson-the woman who would one day become his wife. Dalton also details the preparations taken for the Coffeyville raid and the suspense that hung in the air as they rode into town, revealing the gang's final moments. In addition to presenting Emmett Dalton's accounts, this pictorial memoir includes a foreword by Dalton authority Kith Presland, who provides a peek into the mind of an outlaw.

    Back cover copy
    Originally published in the 1930s, this is the memoir of Emmett Dalton, an outlaw known for his involvement in bank robberies and train holdups toward the turn of the twentieth century. Featuring period photographs and portraits, this book provides fascinating insight into the motives behind the Daltons' most infamous crimes, including the First National Bank robbery and the Coffeyville raid. This new edition comes complete with a foreword by Kith Presland, an expert on the outlaw. Emmett Dalton (1871-1937) was the youngest of four Dalton brothers. He was seriously injured in the same raid in which his brothers were killed and subsequently served fourteen years of a life sentence in the Kansas State Penitentiary before his pardon in 1907. Following his release, he lived in Bartlesville, Oklahoma, and thereafter in the Los Angeles area for twenty years. A graduate of Sparsholt College, Kith Presland is an expert on Emmett Dalton. She resides in Reading, England.
