First edition. Brown cloth, titles stamped in silver on spine, 239 pp., illustrated, portraits, contents, list of illustrations, acknowledgments, prologue, appendices, notes, bibliography, index. Foreword by John Boessenecker. Biography of Nashville Franklyn “Buckskin Frank” Leslie, a man whose reputation has rested on two gun fights ... both in Tombstone. The authors have combined their research efforts to help solve the questions of where Leslie came from and how he died. Leslie developed a reputation as a man to be left alone. The Earps, Doc Holliday, and John Ringo wisely avoided confrontations with him. Leslie was a “lady killer” both figuratively and, in one celebrated incident, literally. Beyond his gunfighting legacy, the authors also explore Leslie’s scouting with General Crook on the Great Plains and his alleged service as a deputy for Wild Bill Hickok in Abilene, Kansas. As new in as new dust jacket.
