The shootout: a symbol of the West, a portrayal between right and wrong, good and evil. Author Leon Metz describes some of the most famous gunfighters in "The Shooters."
Nonfiction Wild West book
With a scholar's authority and a storyteller's passion, Leon Metz chronicles the lives of famous gunfighters like Billy the Kid, Wyatt Earp, and Wild Bill Hickok, as well as lesser-known desperadoes who left just as many corpses and whiskey bottles in their wake. Rich in detail, and woven with wit and insight, these fascinating portraits reveal the Shooters as they really lived, fought, and died.
