" A] true-life adventure saga about the female outlaw who robbed a stagecoach at gunpoint in Arizona in 1899." --New York Times Book Review

History was made when Pearl Hart, disguised as a man, held up a stagecoach and robbed the passengers at gunpoint. A manhunt ensued, and she became a media sensation, hailed by many as "The Bandit Queen." Her early life, family and fate have long remained a mystery--until now.

Drawing on groundbreaking research, John Boessenecker's Wildcat is the first book to uncover the true story of Pearl Hart. Her legacy as a female trailblazer provides a look into the lives of women who made their mark on the American West.
