Title

Jeff Milton, A Good Man with a Gun

Description

Texas historian J. Evetts Haley (1901-1995) recognized in the 1920s that the generation of cowboys and lawmen who populated the romantic era of western settlement was passing from the scene, and set about collecting and preserving their stories for posterity. The result was this first-rate biography of a man of action whose motto, “I never killed a man that didn’t need killing; I never shot an animal except for meat,” embodied the ethos of an entire breed of late-nineteenth-century border men. --Bruce J. Dinges.
