Overview

This popular history separates documented fact from the tall tales that surround ten gunfighters from the Old West. The greatly exaggerated exploits of legendary figures such as Wild Bill Hickok and Bat Masterson are laid to rest in an entertaining read of drama, humor, and no-holds-barred shoot-em-ups. A narrative story-telling style brings readers into the action while the historical research adds truth to the often embellished anecdotes that have outlived the reputations of these infamous gunslingers.
