The Outlaws of Cave-In-Rock

The Outlaws of Cave-In-Rock Historical Accounts of the Famous Highwaymen and River Pirates Who Operated i the Pioneer Days upon the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers and over the Natchez Trace ROTHERT, Otto Arthur

Exceptionally rare and valued by book collectors, Otto A. Rothert s riveting saga of the outlaws and scoundrels of Cave-in-Rock chronicles the adventures of an audacious cast of river pirates and highwaymen who operated in and around the famous Ohio River cavernfrom 1795 through 1820 (adventures featured in Disney s Davy Crockett and the film How the West Was Won). Once sporting the enticing sign "Liquor Vault and House for Entertainment," this beautiful cavern location decoyed the unsuspecting by offering a venue for food, drink, and rest. Compellingly lively, The Outlaws of Cave-in-Rock is nonetheless the work of a scholar, a historian who documents his findings and leaves a detailed bibliographical trail. Presenting many eyewitness accounts, Rothert supplies the lore and legend of the colorful villains of Cave-in-Rock. Always maintaining the difference between stories he tells with historical authority and those that are pure speculation, Rothert provides both a fascinating narrative and a valuable regional history.
