The Rocky Mountain region holds a celebrated place in the "wildest" West of both myth and reality—yet this is the first-ever travel guide to the many sites associated with its notorious past, complete with GPS coordinates for the scenes of the crimes. Written with the same fast-paced, gripping style that marked the author's widely praised earlier work, The Crime Buff's Guide to the Outlaw Rockies takes you on a time-traveling tour through the haunts of Butch Cassidy and the Wild Bunch, serial killer Ted Bundy, the Columbine massacre, and hundreds of the West's most lawless characters. Each site description includes a concise summary of the location's significance, historical context, maps, directions, and photos.
