'Major' Lewis Redmond was the most famous outlaw of his day, outshining contemporaries Jesse James and Billy-the-Kid. This documentary recovers the true story of Redmond's life and times from the distortions of hero worship, tabloid fascination, and the savage depictions of the man in Northern newspapers.

Born to a poor farming family in Appalachia, Lewis Redmond created a bootleg network that ranged through three states, fought and eluded federal lawmen, and helped poor mountain people pay their taxes and save their family land. The true story of this 'American Robin Hood' grants a privileged view into a turbulent, formative era of American history.
