Wilderness of Tigers: A Novel of the Harpe Brothers and Frontier Violence.
Bloomington, IN: Authorhouse, 2005.

This book is based upon historical events. (Read about it in Harpe Brothers)

Silas Magby believed that Kentucky’s frontier would be safe for his family. But then the Harpes came—two mysterious brothers, Micajah and Wiley, with three devoted women followers (one a minister’s daughter). The Harpes created a wake of seemingly motiveless murders—men, women, children, babies, ghoulishly slaughtered. Then fate deals Magby a stunning card: He must end the brothers’ killing spree in order to save his family.


"Tucker tells a fascinating story of these evil doers...It's an interesting part of our history."
