Dime novel by the original mythologiser of the Wild West, with an aging Wild Bill Hickok required to draw his six-shooter ("Truth-Teller I call it. It never speaks without saying something") one last time.

I have always wanted to read a Ned Buntline story since I first heard of them. Now I have read one, and it was not totally up to my expectations. The story as such is not bad, but it does not fit the picture I have of Wild Bill. And about the only correct statement in the book is who killed Wild Bill.
