Barnes &
Marley Brant

The definative, in-depth biography of the Missouri outlaws.

They were commited to  their family, their friends, and their homeland. During the War between the States they suffered injustice; they somehow weathered unspeakable persecution. All they could do was grab life by the shirtfront and held on for all they were worth. Cole, Jim, John and Bob Younger knew sorrow and anguish, just as they came to know retribution and revenge.  The manifestation of their passion resulted in unique rewards of occasional large sums of money and a fame that has endured over a century. Yet along the way they paid a heavy price: the death of their friends and family members, the loss of their ability to experience life as free members of society, their self-respect and ultimately, their own young lives.

Professional Reviews

Library Journal
n this in-depth biography, Brant shows that the Younger brothers--Cole, Bob, John, and Jim--were motivated by commitment, and she sets them firmly in the context of their times, clearly explaining how and why the sons of a prominent western Missouri merchant turned to a life of crime in the years following the Civil War. In the process, she also shows what life on the Missouri-Kansas border was like for those who supported the Confederacy. Brant has carefully crafted a comprehensive and informal account based on the available primary sources and has properly qualified many statements for which definitive proof is lacking. She successfully involves readers in the Youngers' story, making this work especially appealing to a general audience.
