Chicken Dinner: RTW's Favorite Lady Bandits

Belle Starr
 First of all, thanks to guest blogger Karen Michelle Nutt for contributing an article to RTW about Pearl Hart a few weeks ago. Speaking of lady outlaws...

One of the most colorful of the lady outlaws was Belle Starr. You can find good articles at History of Song, Women in History, and you can see her wedding pictures at The Ellison Collection.
Cattle Annie and
Little Britches
 
Then there was Cattle Annie and Little Britches. The two teenagers only played havoc for a couple years, but they left their marks, nonetheless. Take a look at these pages: Suite 101, theoutlaws.com, and if you want to watch the movie with Burt Lancaster and Diane Lane, read the IMDB description.
Speaking of cattle, let's talk about Ellen Liddy Watson, known as Cattle Kate. The first article is pretty interesting, especially since it was written by her grand-nephew: The Lynching of My Great Aunt. Here's another article from Legends of America, and finally an article from Frontier Justice.

Next week, RTW's guest is the talented Meg Mims who will talk about her debut novel, Double Crossing. Can't wait!

We Have A Winner!

Caroline Clemmons won a free copy of RE-RIDE AT THE RODEO by this week's RTW guest, Anne Carrole. Congratulations!

More Good Reads...

Let me know if you reviewed Much Ado About Marshals and I'll send you a sneak peek of the second book in the series, Much Ado About Madams. It's so new, I don't even have a web page for it yet!
