Sinopsis:

Wild West Series: Arizona Highways "The Law of the Gun" by Marshall Trimble (1997). True tales of the wild west from the lawmen like Wyatt Earp & his brothers to the Clanton gang to Doc Holiday to Commodore Perry Owens and his brushes with the Navajos to Pancho Villa to Wild Bill Smith and the saga of a cowboy gone bad. Great stories portraying a colorful past.

From the Publisher:

A revolver worn at the hip -- The saloonkeeper's shotgun stashed handly behind the bar -- A rifle slung across a drifter's saddle -- The gambler with a derringer up his sleeve -- Can you imagine an Old West scene without at least one gun in the picture?

Blood and Honor, Nobility and Violence... With these tales of gunfighters, lawmen, and outlawas, folk historian Marshall Trimble examines the mystique of the Old West and the guns that shaped our fascination with it. Not every cowboy lived by an honorable code, but it always sounded good in the pages of a pulp Western!

Colt, Winchester, Smith & Wesson... Tools of survival as well as deadly weapons, guns on the American frontier symbloized the guts and independence that people idealized in their Western heroes - even when those "heroes" actually were cold-blooded killers. A master storyteller, Trimble recounts the macabre humor of digging up one dead gunslinger to give him his last shot of whiskey, the intensity of the Arizona Rangers who faced death down a gun barrel every time they rode out in pursuit of rustlers, and the vengeful aftermath of Wyatt Earp's showdown in Tombstone.

Read other books in the Wild West Collection, fast-paced, real-life stories of when the Old West was still young and rowdy, where anything could happen - and too often did. *Days of Destiny * Manhunts & Massacres * They Left Their Mark * Tombstone Chronicles * Stalwart Women
