For six years following the Civil War, gunslingers John West and Lawson Kimbrell led the notorious West-Kimbrell Clan in robbing unsuspecting travelers on the Natchez Trace. John West found a criminal kinship in partner Kimbrell, and as gang leaders they were absolutely merciless in creating mayhem far and wide, to an unprecedented degree. Nightriders chronicles the rise of these madmen in and around Winn Parish, Louisiana, and details their ultimate downfall.
Several town names and locations were mispronounced but only Louisiana people would know. overall a great book.
An exciting story, but be warned, it is remorseless through the whole book, a bit hard to listen to in one go. Apparently ii is based on real people, I enjoyed it thoroughly but in more than one listen.
