The gunfighter was a product of his time and enviroment.  He came from all parts of the United States: Hickok and Bat Masterson from Illinois;  Allison from Tennesee; Longley from Texas; others from farther West.  Today many of them stand tall and invincible in the eyes of Western readers.  But what spelled the difference between the fast gunslinger and his opponet?  Was he a legendary name because of his courage, speed , and accuracy, or was it becaue of the considerable degree of trickery and psychology in the gunfighting?

We will probably never know who was the "best" gunfighter.  But this definitive book explores in highly colorful detail all of the glorious legends and the true facts behind them.
