A stunning snapshot of the life of one of Texas’s most notorious outlaws.
For his 42 years on this Earth, John Wesley Hardin’s name was synonymous with outlaw. A killer at 15, in the next few years he became skilled enough with his pistols to back down Wild Bill Hickok in the street. By the time the law caught up with Hardin when he was 25, he had killed as many as 40 men and been shot so many times that, it was said, he carried a pound of lead in his flesh. In jail he became a scholar, studying law books until he won himself freedom, and afterward he tried to lead an upright life. It was not to be.
By the time he was killed in 1895, Hardin was an anachronism - the last true gunfighter of the Old West. In this volume, western master James Carlos Blake retells Hardin’s life, exposing the many different sides of the man who became a legend.

I downloaded this book because i read a wonderful book by the same author: Country of the Bad Wolfes.
Basically no story. More of a two dimensional cartoon
Hard to like a performance when the book is this bad...
I would pull this book from circulation
