Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Hough lived during the time of the settling of the West (1857-1923) and knew several of the figures profiled in the numerous books both fiction and nonfiction he wrote on the subject. Though the exploits of Western bad men have been greatly exaggerated in novels and films, many of these guys were pretty nasty characters, killing and stealing without remorse. This 1906 title profiles many of the real baddies and the legendary lawmen who brought them to justice. The text is illustrated throughout; the book contains an updated introduction by historian Larry D. Underwood. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
