Otto Wood was a Depression-era desperado, born in Wilkes County North Carolina in 1894. He began his life of crime at an early age, stealing a bicycle from a boy in North Wilkesboro N.C. He was quickly caught and spent time in the Wilkes County Jail. He was subsequently sentenced to serve on a chain gang, but the foreman sent him home to his mother due to his age. Wood hopped his first train when he was seven, travelling to stay with relatives in West Virginia. There, his kinfolk taught him how to gamble, make illegal whisky and fight. He suffered from a foot ailment and lost his left hand when he was a teenager. According to some reports he lost his hand in an accident while working for the railroad in West Virginia. Another story, told by relatives, is that the injury occurred while Wood was hunting. Repeated scrapes with the law, mostly involving thefts and bootlegging, led to numerous incarcerations in jails in North Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia.
