Local author, Arley Fadness, presents, "Capturing the Younger Brothers Gang in the Northern Plains." Learn how Sorbel assisted the capture of the Younger Brothers of the Jesse James-Younger Gang.

Sioux Falls author Arley Fadness will discuss his soon-to-be released book, Capturing the Younger Brothers Gang in the Northern Plains: the untold story of heroic teen Asle Sorbol. This fascinating presentation exposes the secret Webster, SD citizen Doc Sorbel hid all his life.

Asle Oscar Sorbel, the 17-year-old lad then living in Madelia, MN and responsible for the capture of the Younger Brothers of the infamous Jesse James outlaw gang in 1876 … quickly and judiciously disappeared. After several years, he would reappear in Webster, SD and spend the rest of his life as the eminent area “horse doctor”, harboring his secret until the year before he died in 1930.  

Fadness is sponsored by the South Dakota Humanities Council, an affiliate of the National Endowment for the Humanities, and is a scholar in the Humanities Council Speakers Bureau.  The author will sell and sign his new release.
