    I love historical novels and this story by Ms. Jenner is one of the best I have ever read! The author has captured the personality and emotions of a would-be gentleman that wanted to believe that he was doing justice to all the miners, by robbing the Wells Fargo & Company stage coaches. The story is brilliantly written and very entertaining. Anyone interested in California History should, by all means, read this book!

  • Charles Bowles was a real-life man who lived in the rough times of the mid-1800s. He seemed an ordinary enough person as a son and then a husband and father. But Charles had a restless streak that changed his life completely.

    Because Charles became a stagecoach robber, a most successful robber, but definitely not an ordinary one. Charles had a unique penchant for leaving bits of poetry at the scenes of his crimes, a penchant that eventually earned him the name and title of Black Bart, The Poet Bandit.

    This is a fascinating fictionalized account of that life change.

    Gail Jenner is a fine writer. The book is extremely factual. Black Bart was quite a character. If you are looking for a fast paced piece of fiction, this is not it. If you are genuinely interested in the historical facts about this California legend, Jenner has nailed it.
