Excerpt from Life of David Belden As may be inferred, his time and talents were not wholly absorbed in the practice of his profession. He contributed frequently to the newspapers and periodicals and was a leading member of the Sons of Temperance. His extensive learning and masterly eloquence combined with great originality, had before this attracted attention and his services were in constant demand for lectures, addresses and political speeches.

“I shot him in the left temple; the gun dropped from his hands; he quivered one instant, and Andy McGinnis climbed the Golden Stairs....” This was Chris Evans speaking. Evans, the killer, train robber and fugitive, was describing the famous 1892 shootout at Young's cabin when he and his partner John Sontag ambushed and killed two members of a posse that was pursuing them. In California Desperadoes, Evans and seven other early outlaws tell their own raw stories—tales of holdups, shootouts and desperate flights from the law. Witness the cruel confessions of the ruthless gang of California bandits who murdered a whole family, men, women and children, in the opening days of the Gold Rush. Stand on the gallows with the notorious Jim Stuart as he is hanged by San Francisco vigilantes determined to retake their city from hordes of Australian convicts, robbers and killers. The ill-starred adventures of Tom Bell, Tiburcio Vasquez and Charles Dorsey will hold you spellbound as the outlaws themselves take you along the dangerous trails they rode. And stage robbers Jim Smith and Dick Fellows will shock you with their own tales of the harrowing and sometimes hilarious antics of the California highwaymen of another day. These are true stories told by true desperadoes and illustrated with many rare photographs.

Guilty or innocent? Historians have devoted much time and effort investigating whether or not Henry Plummer, the sheriff of Bannack, Montana, actually committed the crimes for which he was hanged by vigilantes on a bitter, cold January night in 1864. The question of his innocence has plagued Western historians for fifteen decades. In May of 1993, a posthumous trial was held in Virginia City, Montana, where a Madison County jury consisting of twelve registered voters split the verdict6-6. The judge declared a mistrial and had Sheriff Plummer been alive, she would have told him, You are free to go. Henrys life tells the tale of a lawless West and epitomizes many a mans experience in these untamed, violent mining towns of the 1800s where shootouts and duals rule and life is sometimes worth only a handful of gold or the dispute over a lady, proper or fallen. Henry, a well-educated and handsome man, delicate and consumptive, soft-spoken and refined, appears dedicated to the law and yet, is also capable of instantly shooting a man dead. Trouble follows him everywhere. By the time Henry Plummer becomes sheriff in Bannack in 1863, he has killed five men in self-defense and has loved and lost three women. Henrys time spent at the faro tables pans out better than his time spent as a miner or as a lover. The hunger for gold dust brings every manner of men from all corners of the country and beyond to enjoy the easy reaping, and with them come more robberies and murders. Rumors and suspicion become rampant, leaving no one untouched, including Henry Plummer, a man swept along by the tides of his time.

Historian Gerda Lerner posed the question: What would history be like if seen through the eyes of women? In this insightful and sympathetic look at Hawaii's first female territorial senator, Elsie Wilcox (1874-1954), Judith Dean Gething Hughes adapts Lerner's question to tell the story of a remarkable woman whose life reflects key aspects of the social history of modern Hawaii: the enormous impact of nineteenth-century missionaries and of the sugar plantations, which dominated Hawaii's economy for nearly a century after the Civil War; the powerful influence of the American progressive movement in public education and social welfare; and the onset of the "bloodless revolution" of the 1950s, which replaced the Caucasian Republican oligarchy with a Democratic party led by second-generation Asian Americans. The grandchild of missionaries and the niece of a prosperous Kauai sugar planter, Wilcox was born and raised on her uncle's plantation. Unlike many of her peers, however, Wilcox did not marry but pursued a full-time career as an advocate for change, including education, improved health, and full participation in the life of the community for second-generation Asian Americans. Hughes looks to Wilcox's missionary heritage to reveal the values that shaped her character and to her education at Wellesley College, which transformed her into a Progressive and, by the standards of the early twentieth century, a feminist. Hughes argues that although Wilcox's education and prominent social standing contributed to making her an "old maid," they also enabled her to serve as Kauai's commissioner for education for twelve years until her election to the territorial Senate in 1932 and 1936. There she established herself as the Senate's conscience on women's and children's issues and played a key role in creating Hawaii's social security laws. Women and Children First not only details the life of one of Hawaii's most dedicated social reformers but also provides insights into the historical development of Kauai and Hawaii in general from 1910 to 1940.
