Description - Discovering Highwaymen by Russell Ash
The daring hold-ups and amazing exploits of many highwaymen made them heroes in their lifetime and legents in ours. Some were just as we imagine them - fearless cavaliers, carefree, chivalrous, romantic knights in three-cornered hats - true Gentlemen of the Road. Yet many more, such as half-mythical Dick Dutpin, were unmitigated rogues who simply desired easy money. In this book Russell Ash writes about both sort of highwaymen, their different backgrounds and methods, the measures taken against them, and the punishments they suffered when they were caught. He describes some of their favourite localities and the inns and taverns they supposedly frequented.
