Jacobus Books began in 2008 with the release of James Pylant's Blood Legacy. In 2009 we issued our second true-crime volume, Kansas Gunsmoke, authored by former Los Angeles Times syndicated columnist Myra Vanderpool Gormley. Two more books were published by Jacobus Books that year: Sherri Knight's Vigilantes to Verdicts and James Pylant's Sins of the Pioneers. Jacobus Books is committed to publishing accurate, carefully researched volumes. Our authors continually craft insightful, compelling fact-based stories with documentation, rare photographs and previously unpublished details.
