I can attest as well that R.D. Morgan's new book Taming the Sooner State, due for December release, is the most comprehensive and accurate volume to date on Oklahoma outlaws and lawmen from the territorial days through
the Depression. It covers in detail virtually all the '20s and '30s bandits who either lived in or frequented Oklahoma, tells where they're all planted, and has the most fantastic photo collection I've ever seen in any book. It's one of the greatest things in crime history since Cain invented murder and used it
on his brother Abel and may be pre-ordered now.

Do you know if this book talks about William Campbell and/or Plez Clark? Among other things, they robbed the bank in Asher, OK on 2 or 3 Jan., 1929. My father worked there at the time and was taken hostage by them.
