Sile Doty was an infamous robber, burglar and horse thief. Doty's criminal career is known primarily through his autobiography, compiled by J. G. W. Colburn and published four years after Doty's death as The Life of Sile Doty The Most Noted Thief and Daring Burglar of His Time.  As this title suggests, the tone of the autobiography is boastful and unapologetic.
