A GOOD READ.,
This review is from: Dick Turpin: The Myth of the English Highwayman (Paperback)
unfortunately there aren't too many works on the notorious highwayman so when i accidently came across this book i grabbed it.and im glad i did.
It was well researched and very informative and covers the life and crimes of turpin in good detail, but not only Turpin but other highwaymen of his time.the book includes chapters on the essex gang, and what men like turpin have done to mark history.
this is a good book but if your looking for a biography of turpin then dont bother, but if your looking to learn more on turpin,his life and crimes and men like him then this is a very good place to start.
