His book is about the bad old days of the 19th century, when the primeval forests of Michigan were reduced to a chaotic wilderness of slashings, stumps and sections of discarded tree trunks by the greedy lumber barons and their hired axes, the lumberjacks. In fact, most of the rogues in this book had something to do with the lumber trade, although there a few pirates, barkeepers, pimps, and train-robbers thrown in for the sake of variety. If my fourth-grade teacher had used "Michigan Rogues, Desperados & Cut-Throats" to teach us the history of our great state, there would have been a lot fewer nodding heads and drooping eyelids in her class.

We talk about his book Michigan Rogues, Desparados and Cut Throats. We learn about the Wild and Woolly days when Michigan desperadoes ranked right up there with the wild west.

We are asked to finally accept, as W. has, the fact that we’re all grown up-and accept our tax cut as reward. Coming up for air after a week of total immersion in this production, swimming upstream through what H. L. Mencken once called the Niagra of bilge, it certainly looks to me like W. is the man of the moment.

A rogues gallery (or rogues' gallery) is a police collection of pictures or photographs of criminals and suspects kept for identification purposes. Inspector Thomas Byrnes of the late-19th-century New York City Police Department popularized the term with his collection of photographs of known criminals, which was used for witness identification

I purchased this book while researching my family tree. Captain Jack Seavey is one of my relatives, and he is one of the featured personalities in the book. I found the book informative and entertaining. The information on Capt. Jack was consistent with other information I have been able to find. I recommend it for a good, fast, and entertaining read.

The wild west characters appear wimpy compared to the outlaws in this book. If you are from Michigan, this is a book you need to read.

Great book on deviants from Michigan's past. Stuff they didn't teach in school. I bought three, gave two for gifts.

This was an enjoyable read for Michigan History, with familiar names and stories and the seedy side of sleepy towns.
The book arrived quickly and was in great shape

Author Tom Powers and I agree that Michigan History was the most boring class we ever had to take. He writes, "...I was required to take---oh God save me from the bottomless pit of life-sucking boredom---Michigan history." But it didn't have to be boring, as he himself proves in "Michigan Rogues, Desperados & Cut-throats." His book is about the bad old days of the 19th century, when the primeval forests of Michigan were reduced to a chaotic wilderness of slashings, stumps and sections of discarded tree trunks by the greedy lumber barons and their hired axes, the lumberjacks.

In fact, most of the rogues in this book had something to do with the lumber trade, although there a few pirates, barkeepers, pimps, and train-robbers thrown in for the sake of variety. Rusty old Saginaw, Michigan was a red-hot party town back then:

"The carnal, whiskey-soaked noise emitted by a trainload of liquored-up lumberjacks rattled windows, frightened children, spooked horses, and caused saloon keepers and prostitutes to salivate like Pavlovian dogs. Saginaw often hosted 5,000 loggers on a typical weekend, and the city welcomed every last drunken sot with open arms."

Yes, the Wolverine State lays claim to such notables as Father Jacques Marquette and Henry Ford, but it also has bragging rights to T.C. Cunyan, "The Man Eater from Peterborough," who "got down on all fours to fight a bulldog" and Reimund Holzhey, the "Jesse James of the North Woods," who was the last man to rob a stage coach east of the Mississippi.

If my fourth-grade teacher had used "Michigan Rogues, Desperados & Cut-Throats" to teach us the history of our great state, there would have been a lot fewer nodding heads and drooping eyelids in her class. This book is both well-researched and extremely funny.

This little volume is a real page-turner. It's short and concise, but oh so interesting. I loved it. If you are into 19th century history, especially crime and law and order in the midwest, then this book is a must.
