Volume 2, is 33% larger than the first volume. A plus is the addition of six women outlaws and three Lady Marshals, as well as life in a mining camp--Austin, Nevada. Most of the outlaws and gunmen are little known today but were notorious in their time.
Only a few are currently remembered. The purpose of this book is to tell their stories, the true story, in a condensed manner, for easy reading while being as factual as I can make it.... It is these men and women who once tried to rule the western frontier and those lawmen and women that stopped them. Their actions and deeds is what has created the legends and created the Wild west. Legends aside, we speak of the facts.
