Tom Horn in Life and Legend

by Larry Ball

University of Oklahoma Press, Soft cover $19.95

The definitive biography of an enigmatic frontier gun wielder. Some of the legendary gunmen of the Old West were lawmen, but more, like Jesse James, were outlaws. Tom Horn was both. Lawman, soldier, hired gunman, detective, outlaw, and assassin, this darkly enigmatic figure has fascinated Americans ever since his death by hanging the day before his forty-third birthday. In his masterful historical biography, Larry Ball, a distinguished historian of western lawmen andoutlaws, presents the definitive account of Horn's career.

Horn fought in the Apache wars when he was still in his early twenties and chased the Indians into Mexico with General George Crook. He later became a Pinkerton and range detective before his execution for the death of a fourteen year old boy. Horn's guilt is still debated.

To an extent no previous scholar has managed to achieve, Ball distinguishes the truth about Horn from the numerous legends and concludes with a survey of Horn as described by historians, novelists and screenwriters since his own time.
