Product Description

Product Description

This exciting article is packed with eyewitness detail including first-hand accounts of Wild Bill Hickok, his death and burial, the arduous travel conditions, colorful characters (such as Charley Utter), Deadwood ("Taken as a whole, I never in my life saw so many hardened and brutal-looking men together..."), fear and racism towards Native Americans, and much more.

Written in a lively and humorous style, this 5,550 word article remains as informative and accessible as the day it was written.

Editor's Note: The text has been painstakingly reproduced from a facsimile of the original document. Blatant typographical errors have been corrected but quaint spellings of the era have been preserved.

4.0 out of 5 stars take me back to black hills 17 Feb. 2013
By bri
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I choose this because I visited the Black Hills and Deadwood a while back and I like history especially the wild west and wanted to know more about. First impressions is that it is very interesting and it shows that the white man was to blame for the indians demise because of the man's greed for gold and not recognising the indian's sacred lands. It has a bit about Custar too. The book was downloaded on the kindle device and once I had it charged downloaded quickly.
