Overview

By Autumn 1899 the coffin has all but closed on the American Wild West. Men once considered the quintessence of the term "desperado" now seek legitimate standing in their respective community. Some even long for redemption.Enter four such men, each legendary in his own right. Elusive desperado Frank James, divisive lawman Virgil Earp, his brother and confidence man James Earp, and notorious assassin of cattle thieves Tom Horn.Authenticated accounts detail a chance encounter wherein these men arrived separately in Nacogdoches, Texas on a lazy Sunday morning, sought respite in a local saloon and quickly found themselves entertaining adventurous children. Hastily crafting and illustrating tales of the West, the men threw adventure around the room; dismissing the many myths surrounding their more infamous exploits and denying the existence of "notches" on their guns. However, when finally called upon to dispatch a new breed of desperado terrorizing local citizens, these western legends proved every one of those myths true-and in high style.Carve another notch.

    Western Legend Review

    Witty, intelligent, and emotion stirring are just a few of the words I would use to describe James Allder’s Western Legend. Historical evidence mixed in with gathered information and the author’s own ability to assemble a series of events makes the novel not only enjoyable, but believable. A worthy read for anyone old or new to the western genre.

    A Western for anyone who's never read a Western

    I got this at the urging of a close friend. Got an e-reader and wasn't really sure what to do with it. There was nothing I wanted to read especially. But the book was never what I was expecting. Reminded me more of a mainstream novel with some history thrown in. I liked that. I have never read anything like that before. Really enjoyed this book and recommend it to anyone who has never read a western before.
