Suppose you could talk to the badmen of old California. Most of them would tell you the same thing: if they had just listened to their daddy and stayed out of saloons and gambling halls, their chances of dying in bed would have been greatly enhanced. Others, the ones we are concerned with, did not care. But then, some men are just born to die with their boots on. In California Badmen, these are little-known desperadoes and gunmen who couldn't stay out of trouble if they tried. Here are true stories of men with the bark on, who spit in the eye of the devil as they relentlessly pursued what was often a bloody destiny. In these pages, ride the foothills of old California where you will meet up with some of the toughest and most unrepentant scoundrels you will ever meet. California Badmen is a exploration of little-known Western frontier gunfighters. Billy Mulligan, Sam Temple, Peter Olsen, Joe Dye, Bob McFarlane and those responsible for the Rancheria killings are brought back through the pages and taking their stand in Californian history. The riotous lives of these unique collection of mean men with guns spill over the California frontier and rival the likes of "Wild Bill" Hickok, Billy the Kid, and the Earp Family.
