Description
Late one September night in 1891, a man boarded the American Express train as it sped through New York State; wearing a red hood and armed with two pistols, he stole a fortune in cash, then vanished without a trace. His name was Oliver Curtis Perry, and he became the country's most wanted man; at the same time, the public couldn't get enough of the charismatic young robber. Five months later, Perry robbed the same train again, and was caught only after an extraordinary chase. But as Tamsin Spargo reveals here, Perry's prison life proved as remarkable as his robberies, as he turned escape-artist, protester, hunger striker, and finally poet in his determination to win his freedom.
