Ten Deadly Texans

Overview

"Picking the top ten of virtually anything is difficult if not impossible, but Laurence Yadon and Dan Anderson have presented a strong argument that this grouping belongs at the top of any list of deadly fighters. In their own way, each one chose a deadly path filled with violence, bloodshed, high drama, and excitement."

Overview

"Picking the top ten of virtually anything is difficult if not impossible, but Laurence Yadon and Dan Anderson have presented a strong argument that this grouping belongs at the top of any list of deadly fighters. In their own way, each one chose a deadly path filled with violence, bloodshed, high drama, and excitement."
-Chuck Parsons, author of John B. Armstrong: Texas Ranger and Pioneer Ranchman

"There may be only seven deadly sins, but authors Yadon and Anderson have canonized ten deadly Texans in infamy's hall of fame. This book is a well-researched and highly readable account of the Lone Star State's meanest men and women." -Mike Cox, author of The Texas Rangers: Wearing the Cinco Peso, 1821-1900

"Texas has long been known for its colorful characters—both heroes and villains—but seldom will you find the stories of so many of its bad men in one place. Yadon and Anderson have done their homework to separate the truth from the legend, because not only are they good historians, they know that the real story is quite often better than the legend. Ten Deadly Texans takes you from the Civil War to the Great Depression, from cow ponies and six-guns to Ford V-8s and automatic weapons, through the real lives of some of Texas's most notorious sons."
-James R. Knight, author of Bonnie and Clyde: A Twenty-First-Century Update
