Deadly Dozen: Forgotten Gunfighters of the Old West vol. 1
Robert K. Dearment
Tells the stories of twelve of the thousands of grassroots gunfighters, who were feared in their own time, but almost forgotten today. DeArment, a life-long student of law and lawlessness in the West, has compiled these accounts from court records, newspapers and other frontier records. In addition to being a collective biography, Deadly Dozen also functions as a social history of the gunfighter culture. 266 pages. Hardback.
