Who is Black Bart? : or the scourge of Siskiyou : a melodrama by James Witherell( Book )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Although many of these characters were actual people, this play is a work of fiction - or perhaps fantasy. While Lotta Crabtree, Bret Harte, Joaquin Miller, and Mark Twain were all in Yreka at some time, it is unlikely they were there on the same day. Even so, they might have crossed the paths of Charles Bolton, James Hume, Nugget Tom, or Stagecoach Sally. In reality, Hume finally captured Black Bart in San Francisco, but it's more fun to have it happen in Siskiyou." (Authors note)

Characters include the hero, Stanley Studmill, the heroine, Rebecca Roundhouse, the mysterious Chinese foreman, Gan Dee, the ever-reliable, Boxcar Betsy and her cousin, Bullhorn Beulah. "Duke and his beautiful but equally nasty accomplice, Flora Flagstop, find themselves caught in one of the most hilarious chases ever staged."
