One of the more notorious of the range detectives and the pre-eminent name in Wyoming history, Horn operated with a free-hand until he was arrested for the 1901 murder of the fourteen year-old son of a sheep-ranching settler. The murder and questionable nature of Horn's conviction still ignite firestorms of controversy among historians and Wyomingites in general. With new findings never before published, the author questions whether Horn was actually railroaded for a murder he did not commit, but could have. The author also points to a probable killer of Willie Nickell. Fine in fine dust jacket.
