First edition. Signed by the author. Cloth, xii, 412 pp., frontis, introduction & acknowledgements, illustrated, epilogue, endnotes, bibliography, index. "The exploits of the outlaw Sam Bass led to his legendary status of an amiable rogue who took on the widely disliked railroad corporations and who followed the code of the outlaw by refusing to give up his companions to the pursuing lawmen. Beginning his life of crime by robbing stagecoaches in the Black Hills of the Dakota Territory, Sam Bass and his gang were soon holding up trains in Nebraska and Texas. The chase for Bass in 1878 throughout Texas was unequaled in the state's history and ended with the famous gunfight on the streets of Round Rock, Texas." Very fine in dust jacket.
