Publisher Comments:

DEADWOOD, DAKOTA TERRITORIES, 1876: Legendary gunman Wild Bill Hickcock and his friend Charlie Utter have come to the Black Hills town of Deadwood fresh from Cheyenne, fleeing an ungrateful populace. Bill, aging and sick but still able to best any man in a fair gunfight, just wants to be left alone to drink and play cards. But in this town of played-out miners, bounty hunters, upstairs girls, Chinese immigrants, and various other entrepeneurs and miscreants, he finds himself pursued by a vicious sheriff, a perverse whore man bent on revenge, and a besotted Calamity Jane. Fueled by liquor, sex, and violence, this is the real wild west, unlike anything portrayed in the dime novels that first told its story.

wurdnurd, February 18, 2010 (view all comments by wurdnurd)
Occasionally brutal, callous, entertaining and inspiring, this tale of the “real” Wild West toes the line between reality and fiction. Some characters are little more than cameos, serving a peripheral, but pivotal, purpose (Agnes Lake comes to mind), while others are the catalyst for nearly all the drama (Charley Utter, for instance). All the while, these are stories upon stories, about how the unrepentant territories ate up people’s dreams and ambitions, leaving them with little morals and even less guidance.
