This book is hard to put down. If you love history, or you are curious of how life really was in the 1880's, you must read this book. If your idea of what frontier life was like based on Hollywood, you will be surprised at how far off that depiction is. Hollywood does not do it justice nor does it accurately describe the moral character of those at the time, including it's outlaws. This book is more interesting than any movie. It is an autobiogragphy of the author's life written without editing for spelling or grammar. He considered himself uneducated, but I assure you that he has more impressive writing skills than many people do today. His writing alone is an indictment of our present education system. He was personally involved with several well known historical figures of the time including Geronimo, General Crook, General Miles, and other Apache chiefs. He relates his life experiences in a humble and matter of fact way that leaves you no doubt of the honesty of his story. Spoiler Alert-Tom Horn, a movie made in the 1970's, is not as good as this book (but movies rarely are). This book was written while Mr. Horn was in jail awaiting trial for murder that he did not commit. He was falsely accused and eventually hanged during the Wyoming range war era. The unbelievable corruption of the cattle barons resulted in his being (badly) framed for the crime. Read it and decide for yourself.
