About the Author
Larry Ball is Professor Emeritus of History at Arkansas State University, Jonesboro, and the author of five books, including Desert Lawmen: The High Sheriffs of New Mexico and Arizona, 1846-1912 and Elfego Baca: In Life and Legend.
"Few westerners lived a life as varied and as exciting as did Tom Horn--as cowboy, miner, army scout, packer, Apache interpreter, lawman, Pinkerton detective, veteran of the Spanish-American War, and finally, hired assassin. To this day his image rides boldly across the panorama of the American frontier. In this superbly researched biography, veteran historian Larry Ball wades through a morass of myth and misinformation--much of it promulgated by Horn himself--to get at the meat, bones, and gristle of the real man. Here is the true Tom Horn, the good, the bad, and the ugly."--John Boessenecker, author of When Law Was in the Holster: The Frontier Life of Bob Paul.
