Author Marilyn A. Hudson, the "bizarre history genie", does it again with her new work profiling some of the young women who made headlines - rightly and wrongly - in 1890's Oklahoma. Horse thieves, hoedowns and hoodlums...
The 1890's, the Gilded Age, in Oklahoma saw the twin territories rife with gangs, crooks, thieves, and outlaws of every stripe. The fairer sex was represented in this mix, sometimes truthfully and sometimes drawn from the whole cloth of overactive and imaginative newspaper editors, politicians and lawmen.
Meet a variety of women whose stories are often absent or distorted in the history books. Introduced will be such people as Cattle Annie, Little Britches, 'Tom King' aka Flo Quick, Jessie Findlay, Eugenia Moore, and others.
