Copyright/published Year: by Caxton Printers
As the twentieth century began, the American West was changing. ì Trolley cars wisked passengers around cities like Portland and ì Seattle. Telephones were becoming commonplace. The days of the ì horse were numbered. Even the old time outlaws like the James and ì Dalton gangs were gone. But just when folks thought the days of ì the Wild West were over, along came Harry Tracy--a new kind of ì badman--not a Jesse James--more like a protype for Clyde ì Barrow.
On June 9, 1902, Harry Tracy shot his way out of the Oregon State ì Penitentiary in Salem, killing three guards. This violent act ì started a two-month, two-state manhunt unique in Northwest ì criminal history. Bill Gulick, dean of Northwest history writers, ì uses the accounts of newspaper reporters who covered the chase, ì to paint fascinating portraits of Tracy and his pursuers. Gulick ì also tells the stories of the men and women of Oregon and ì Washington who became unwilling participants in the Tracy saga ì when the fugitive barged into their daily lives.
