Rogues and Rebelsintroduces us to dozens of larger-than-life Westerners--some infamous, some obscure--who dared to be different. Brian Brennan chronicles the mavericks, iconoclasts, and adventurers who threw away the rulebook, thumbed their noses at convention, and let their detractors howl. They never retracted, never explained, never apologized, and they got things done. Discover the unforgettable characters who made the West what it is today. You know some by name: Jack Webster, Nellie McClung, and Tommy Douglas. Others are well-known: the inventor of the Bloody Caesar; those who assumed fake identities to further their ambitions; the mysterious cult leader Brother XII, and more."
