Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Horn was a death sentence to rustlers and the devil incarnate to homesteaders in late nineteenth-century Wyoming. The most notorious of the range detectives and the pre-eminent name in Wyoming history, he operated unchecked until he was arrested for the 1901 murder of the fourteen-year-old son of a sheep-ranching settler. The murder and questionable nature of Horn's conviction still ignite firestorms of controversy among historians and Wyomingites in general.<P>With findings never before published, author Chip Carlson's monumental research draws the reader into questioning whether Tom Horn was actually railroaded for a murder he did not commit — but could have. In this, Carlson's third book on events surrounding Tom Horn, he points to the probable killer of Willie Nickell.<P>Many photographs and documents enhance this new book. Cover and interior artwork have been provided by Wyoming artist Larry Edgar. A foreword by Larry D. Ball, Ph.D., places the events in perspective.<P>Before he was hanged Horn said, "I have lived about fifteen ordinary lives. I would like to have had somebody who saw my past and could picture it to the public. It would be the most god damn interesting reading in the country." Now author Chip Carlson provides that reading.
