A query: can Laura James or anyone help me do some research on the criminal subculture of the Old West l880-1907ish? I'm working on a project in which thieves, burglars, safecrackers and their ilk regarded their trade as almost as respectable as the ordinary world. I'm especially interested in how boys were recruited into the profession.

Locale: Canada to San Francisco, anywhere west oif the Rockies about until the SFrisco earthquake.

Anyone recommend books, forums etc?
