Descripción

8vo., (8 x 5 ½ inches). Photograph of the author tipped in on title page. Original publisher's maroon cloth, front cover and spine lettered in gilt; dust jacket (large strip missing from dust jacket). First edition. "The author of this story was fitted from childhood for the wild, turbulent life he experienced in the wild and woolly west of early days. While unschooled in books, his skill with horse an gun gave him a wide acquaintance on the outskirts where mounted vagabonds lived a very romantic, exciting life. It is along this line of outdoor life, where every man was a law unto himself, that he speaks between these covers of these unusual incidents" (Introductory). The episodes in this volume recount the adventures of the outlaws in the Rocky Mountains during the great westward expansion of the Union Pacific Railroad. "This rare book is the personal narrative of the author's life and adventures in the Wyoming country and his experiences among the Rocky Mountain outlaws in the days when the Union Pacific was building westward. The author tells about Tom Horn's killings and his execution" (Adams). Tom Horn (1860-1903) was an Old West lawman, scout, soldier, hired gunman, detective, outlaw, and assassin. During his four years as a Pinkerton detective he participated in regular shoot-outs, killing seventeen men, outstripping many of the more famous Western gunmen. Ironically, he was hanged in Cheyenne, Wyoming, the day before his 43rd birthday, for a murder that he likely did not commit. N° de ref. de la librería 72MMS111
