This book is great if like me you wanted to learn about the real gunfights from the old west and the men that took part in them , for me the most important thing about this book is it does not just dwell on the really well known gunfights and gunfighters but also some you may not of heard about . i wanted a book with farely small chapters dealing with individual stories and characters but with more emphasis on the lesser known characters and incidents not just famous ones and more of them , and this book provided me with what i wanted . it gives you enough detail and interest to allow you to enjoy the accounts , but manages to cram an awful lot of them in at the same time . it has made me want to delve futher into the general subject , and has introduced me to many new characters and incidents to research and read about further , and this is why i would recommend it , as a starter book in the subject it is excellent and a great stepping stone to inspire you to read further into this turbulent and fascinating period of history .

For those interested in the history of the "Wild West" this book is useful, in that, it covers gunfights and gunfighters not normally covered by many other books on this subject.

Forget the glorified and inaccurate Western's you've seen and enjoyed on TV, the cinema or DVD: this is the real, somewhat less glamerous retelling of the old gunfights and gunfighers of the Old West.

It rightly destroys the mythes and glamour that many attach to this period of US history, but its all the better for doing this. What your left with is an excellent account of the real lifes and deaths of gunfighters, well researched and told by James Reasoner.

Do read if you want to get a true feel for real life in the Old West....avoid if you don't want your movie dreams destroyed
