A colorful and well researched story of a wild and rowdy cow town and the lawmen, badmen, and lawyers who walked its streets. The law could acquit a man for shooting another unarmed man in the back if they liked the man. But there was a surprising adherence to the letter of the law as well. A book of fascinating contrasts.
