Highwaymen and Outlaws by Michael Billett
In large format, this illustrated history of highwaymen and outlaws seeks to portray the criminals as they actually were, and not as they appear in the fabricated myth created by books, films and television. It covers their methods, their lairs and weapons, the men who pursued them and brought them to justice, the punishment they received and the folklore attached to them. The book covers English highwaymen of the 17th and 18th centuries, European highwaymen and bandits, American West outlaws and Australian bushrangers. It has been illustrated from international archives.
