This absorbing narrative chronicles the criminal adventures and misadventures of one of America's most infamous families. Ma Barker, her boys and their pals devised crime sprees that spread like prairie wildfires throughout the quiet little towns of mid-America in the 1920s and '30s.

Raised in the rough-and-tumble boomtown of Tulsa, Oklahoma, Arrie Barker's four sons quickly moved up the ranks from childhood delinquency to robbery and murder, all the while enjoying their mother's outspoken protection and defense. As their crimes escalated, they found their niche in a network of gangs that roamed the heartland.

Author Robert Winter has done an impressive job of researching the lives of these legendary anti-heroes, and he recreates their exploits -- from bravado to blunders -- in fascinating detail. His fast, crisp style and occasional bursts of humor appropriately echo the fast guns of these outlaws and the women who ran with them. Appearing in dramatic counterpoint are the brave lawmen who fought hard to protect their communities. Whether a historian or true-crime buff, you will find these stories of blowing safes, sawed-off shotguns and daring prison escapes fascinating and informative.
