Description

On May 30, 1899, history was made when Pearl Hart, disguised as a man, held up a stagecoach in Arizona and robbed the passengers clean at gunpoint. A manhunt ensued as word of her heist spread, and Pearl Hart went on to become a media sensation and the most notorious female outlaw on the western frontier. Her fate after her later release from prison has long remained a mystery to scholars and historians – until now.

 

Drawing on groundbreaking research into territorial records and genealogical data, John Boessenecker’s Wildcat is the first book to uncover the enigma of Pearl Hart. Hailed by many as the “The Bandit Queen,” Pearl’s epic life of crime and her legacy as a female trailblazer provides a crucial lens into the lives of the rare women who made their mark in the American West.
