  • Take a step back in time with the Bedside Book of Bad Girls: Outlaw women of the Midwest. Join author Chris Enss as she digs up and reveals startling facts about some of the most fascinating renegade women of the Midwest.

Experience history as if you were actually there. Stand witness to the trial and hanging of Elizabeth Reed, and ride the rails with Fannie and Jennie Freeman, the mother-daughter team who bilked railroad companies out of more than $150,000. In eleven captivating profiles, Enss brings to life the stories of these fascinating pistol-packing, horse-thieving, poker-swindling outlaws.
