In an era dominated by outlaws like Pretty Boy Floyd and Baby Face Nelson, where money, power, and reputation ruled supreme, Emmett Long stood out as a unique figure. "Selectively Lawless" unravels the life of this enigmatic character—a bank robber, moonshiner, gambler, and occasional killer who carved his own path through the tumultuous times.
Contrary to the typical outlaw narrative, Emmett Long's story takes an unexpected turn. Rather than meeting a tragic demise in a blaze of guns and fury, he defied the odds, living to a ripe age. The book traces his journey as he reforms his ways, embraces Christianity, marries a good woman, raises a family, and transforms into a successful rancher. This unconventional tale challenges the stereotypes of the Great Depression outlaw, presenting a complex and multi-faceted character who defied easy categorization.
Asa Duane Dunnington, the nephew of Emmett Long, collaborates with Bill Maddox to bring this captivating true story to life. Through meticulous research and a personal connection to the subject, the authors provide a nuanced and intimate portrayal of an American original whose life choices defied expectations.
