Discovering Highwaymen (Discovering #94)

3.29  ·  Rating Details ·  7 Ratings  ·  1 Review
The daring hold-ups and amazing exploits of many highwaymen made them heroes in their lifetime and legends in ours. Some were just as we imagine them - fearless cavaliers, carefree, chivalrous, romantic knights in three-cornered hats, true Gentlemen of the Road. Yet many more, such as half-mythical Dick Turpin, were unmitigated rogues who simply desired easy money.

A short guide to the history of the highwayman, peppered with some accounts of real-life robbers of the road. This book is written in an accessible style, but for anyone looking for real 'meat' it can only serve as a short introduction to the topic. OUTLAWS AND HIGHWAYMEN, by Gillian Spraggs, is a serviceable and comprehensive guide to the subject.
