In the remote parts of the West where law and order was unheard of, a man's best friend and main hope for salvation was his gun. It was an integral part of his life, and most men who lived and died by the gun were a breed apart. In their own time, they were generally called gunfighters -- part man, part myth. A dynamic and evocative design, this illustrated, full color book brings the ever-fascinating wild west to life.
Born in Chicago, Illinois, Al Cimino's fascination with the West began when he visited Tombstone, Arizona, and became captivated by western history. He is the author of a large number of historical western biographies.
