MINNEAPOLIS — Rod Beemer is confident readers will find his books fascinating. So much so, the Minneapolis-based author is offering a money-back guarantee.
“If you don’t learn something from them or find them fascinating, I’ll give you your money back,” he said.
So far, no one’s taken him up on the offer. His last major nonfiction work, 2006’s The Deadliest Woman in the West: Mother Nature on the Prairies on Plains 1800 – 1900, tells the history of weather disasters on the Great Plains, whether it be wrought by tornadoes, droughts, floods, thunderstorms, or blizzards.
His newest book, to be published by The History Press on December 7 this year, is titled Notorious Kansas Bank Heists: Gunslingers to Gangsters. It features colorful outlaw figures ranging from the Dalton Gang of the Old West to a Depression-era group of bandits with an airplane containing a .50-caliber machine gun. Note
“A lot of what the book is about is those who succeeded robbing banks and those who tried to control these robbers,” Beemer said.
