A very interesting subject, a rarely discussed outlaw organization in the
northeast US in the 19th century. An early version of the mafia really.
I am actually a relative but really didn't know much about them. My grandfather did but didn't want to talk about it with me when I was a young lad.
They were quite organized, very successful, and feared by many. Check this book out, it's a good read!

This book, in my opinion, could have used an editor---a lot of it felt like newspaper accounts sort of mashed together. That said, it's the most complete account I've ever seen of this little-known ally of the James Gang.

George Washington Loomis raised a family of criminals---even though they could have been rich legitimately, they preyed on neighbors and others impartially, until a brave local constable decided to put a stop to their shenanigans. Present-day Loomises are mostly ashamed of this, and the gang is little-known outside of its old haunts in Central Upstate New York.

I really liked the book because it is about the area where I grew up. It's nice to know that you have such a great selection. I would recommend it to anyone. Especially people in our area. Very informative.

I bought this as a Xmas gift for an actual Loomis relative. He loved it & when he was done with it, I got to read about his family!
