Synopsis

The Short And Bloody History Of Highwaymen by John Farman

Did you know that highwaymen used to be 'as common as crows'? So where did they all come from? And what happened to them? This hilarious book will stand and deliver the terrible truth about the gentlemen of the road. What they ate, where they lived, and what happened to them if they were caught. If you've ever fancied life as a highwayman, then take a look inside!
