Deadly Dozen: Twelve Forgotten Gunfighters of the Old West
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.
