Synopsis

Legendary gunfighters come to life in this vivid look at eight of the most ornery guys and gals of the wild West. Here are the true stories of Wild Bill Hickock, Calamity Jane, Billy the Kid, Jesse James, Belle Starr, Doc Holliday, Black Bart, and Joaquin Murietta--often a far cry from the glamorous tales they told about themselves to the newspapers.

Andrew Glass separates fact from fiction, and gives readers an overview of the rough and tumble days following the Civil War that produced these unlikely heroes. There's plenty of fun and mayhem in these larger-than-life characters, along with a good dose of the real history of an exciting period in the opening of the American West.
