I didn't find this book 'fascinating' as so many other reviewers did. It felt fake and foolish to me, and not at all historically accurate; but perhaps it is and I just don't know my American/cowboy history well enough. The language seemed contrived at worst and forced at best. There was very little conversation/dialogue, but was mostly told by a 3rd-person narrator. It was often difficult to distinguish which character the author was talking about, and the regular face type vs. the italic face type only confused this matter more.
