The first edition which was published in 1892, is considered to be "exceedingly rare." The story of the five Marlow brothers and their life in late 19th century Texas, is a story of false charges, violence, and intrigue. The story was the basis for the John Wayne movie, THE SONS OF KATIE ELDER. The introduction by DeArment is especially of high interest as many new facts are revealed. Fine in fine dust jacket.
