Well, first I should say this is my uncle's book.
Second I should share that the main character, John King Fisher, is a cousin from my father's side.
It needs to be noted that while many of the facts/events in this book are real and in the history books, where there were blanks spaces or no family stories to fill in the time frame, my uncle researched what would have happened at that time and used his creative license to fill in the gaps.

Ok, now to the review... I am not a big fan of westerns, eit
It is ashame that this book isn't on more shelves. It is a great biographical story of an outlaw with a soft heart. It has as much action as a good gunfighter movie.
