In this guest lecture, Joe Johnston discusses the last book in his Missouri Vigilante series, which unravels a circular tale of frontier vigilantism and ponders America’s progress beyond it. An engaging narrative touching on bank robberies, Jesse James and Robert Ford, and elaborate tales of frontier justice, this book will delight true crime enthusiasts and students of history alike.
