Books Info:

Running with Dillinger free pdf This book picks up where "The Desperate Ones: Canada's Forgotten Outlaws" (1550026100) left off. Here are more remarkable true stories about Canadian crimes and criminals - most of them tales that have been buried for years. The stories begin in colonial Newfoundland, with robbery and murder committed by the notorious Power Gang.As readers travel across the country and through time, they will meet the last two men to be hanged in Prince Edward Island, smugglers who made Lake Champlain a battleground, a counterfeiter whose bills were so good they fooled even bank managers, and teenage girls who committed murder in their escape from jail. They will meet the bandits who plundered banks and trains in Eastern Canada and the West, and even the United States. Among them were Same Behan, a robber whose harrowing testimony about the brutal conditions in the Kingston Penittentiary may have brought about his untimely death in "The Hole"- and John "Red" Hamilton, the Canadian-born member of the legendary Dillinger gang.
