Hanging Around The Big Sky: Book Two

The Unofficial Guide to Lynching, Strangling and Legal Hangings of Montana

Book 2: Extra Legal Hangings by Tom Donovan


This is a 392 page soft cover book which deals mainly with the 164 illegal or 'Extra-Legal' executions of Montana. It explains the history of the Montana Miners' Courts, the Original Vigilantes of Bannack and Virginia City, the various chapters of the Homeland Vigilantes as well as the famous, but little known, Cowboy Stranglers of 1884. Also included is a chapter on the many rumored hangings across the state, and to make it a complete guide, it briefly describes the legal executions and includes the tables: "Natural and Man-made Gallows", "Hangings by Year" and "Hangings by County".

With b/w photos, sketches, tables and a Hanging Victim index.

Published by Portage Meadows Publishing, this is the first edition from Summer 2008.
