The Wild, Wild West: Thrilling Tales by Great Authors

Overview

“A town that had a man for breakfast every morning.” That’s how Tombstone, Arizona was described in the late-1800s, bolstering the myth that a corpse would be found cooling in the town’s dusty streets each sunrise. The reality was quite different and much less violent, of course, but that hasn’t kept the fanciful folklore of the Wild West from being told and retold in the years since, across America and around the world.

Overview

“A town that had a man for breakfast every morning.” That’s how Tombstone, Arizona was described in the late-1800s, bolstering the myth that a corpse would be found cooling in the town’s dusty streets each sunrise. The reality was quite different and much less violent, of course, but that hasn’t kept the fanciful folklore of the Wild West from being told and retold in the years since, across America and around the world.

Respected anthologist John Richard Stephens captures the quick-trigger temper and savage spirit of America’s frontier days in The Wild, Wild West, an exciting compilation of factual and fictional stories about the Wild West by famous authors whose accounts are so colorfully told that if they aren’t true, they should be.

From gunfighters, outlaws, and cowboys, to robber barons, gold miners, and card sharps, the vivid personalities and the stories they give rise to in The Wild, Wild West reveal the truth behind the embroidered legends of the Old West, even as they add to them.
