criminals & outlaws, post-confederation (1867-)

also available: Paperback eBook
published: 2018

The gruesome saga of the Black Donnellys has been heavily mythologized beginning with the first book published on the story by Thomas Kelley in 1954. A thick layer of rumour, legend and hearsay has built up around the facts of the case. But one thing is clear — no one who reads this book will ever forget the murderous events that occurred near the town of Lucan, Ontario, in the 1870s.

This new edition has been updated to include numerous black and white and colour photos pertaining to the infamous Donnelly family.
