Bad Company. By Joseph Henry Jackson. Lincoln, Nebraska: University of Nebraska Press, 1977. 346 pages. $4.50.

Originally published in 1933, this paperback reprint presents sketches of several prominent California bandits and outlaws who roamed the countryside from the 1850s to the 1880s. Jackson attempts to dispel some of the myths surrounding such persons as Joaquin Murrieta and Black Bart.
