The Dalton Gang Story

By Nancy B. Samuelson

The name DALTON powerfully evokes the popular image of the Wild West Outlaw. The Dalton Gang made history with a bold attempt to rob two banks at once in Coffeyville, Kansas on October 5, 1892.

There has been an avalanche of Dalton literature, most of it downright fictitious. "The Dalton Gang Story," however, is an effort to set the record straight and to tell the real story of this frontier family.

Samuelson delves into the history of the entire family... not only the outlaws, making this book a must have for Dalton family genealogists.

The book is illustrated with many photographs as well as reproductions of source documents, family Bible & court records, newspaper articles, etc.
