My favorite stories are in a category I call unbelievably true tales. They are wild enough that they might not work as fiction because they arent quite believable.

They are wild enough that they might not work as fiction because they arent quite believable. The story of the outlaw Pat Crowe belongs in this category. He was Jesse James without the name recognition. A bank robber, escape artist, low-life, and devout ex-Catholic, Crowe wasnt a lunkhead criminal, although he did plenty of stupid things. He was a character with some appeal and flair. He proved it in spades when he sent wedding congratulations to his former kidnap victim years after the kidnapping. But Im not going to spoil the story. Read the book. Jack Koblas has done his homework and told this true tale well. Youll be handsomely rewarded for the time you invest in The Last Outlaw. ---David Harding, History Columnist, Omaha World-Herald
