Kouris includes never-before-published photographs. Ann Bassett was known as the Queen of the Cattle Rustlers, although she was never convicted. Queen Ann, as she was called, lived a life full of adventure and controversy in the Brown’s Park region of Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah. She broke bread with Butch Cassidy, had her life turned upside down by notorious range detective Tom Horn, and stood tall against cattle baron Ora Haley.
