Very Good. No Dust Jacket. 5 1/4" x 7 3/4" 207 Pages. Owner's name stamped on front endpaper. No other marks or stamps to this tight book with flawless interior text pages. This book is about William 'Bill' Doolin, one of Southwest's most colorful and widely known outlaw chiefs. A full account of his life had never been attempted before. Most of the writings about Doolin have been concerned with some particular event or dealt with his contemporaries. This book is based on facts and evidence carefully gathered, sifted, and evaluated-about a man, a territory, and the times. Few men have led a more exciting life than this Oklahoma outlaw. As a legendary figure of pioneer days, he has been credited with a multitude of deeds, some true and some not so true. The author has attempted to make this account of Bill Doolin's life as complete and factual as exhaustive research, time and material will permit. He has turned to books, newspaper files, printed articles, magazines, municipal records, memories of his contemporaries, and the verbal accounts of many people who knew him in one way or another. Doolin was acquainted with the writer Eugene Manlove Rhodes of New Mexico and was in the process of moving his wife and child to that area when he was killed. Upon hearing of Doolin's death he said what a waste and Rhodes believed that had he made it to New Mexico he would have become a good citizen. Contents in Ten Chapters: Bill Doolin The Man and His Background, Bill Doolin Sideswipes the Law, Trains are Good Business for Outlaws, Bill Doolin Goes Out on his Own, All This and Marriage Too, Gunfight as Ingalls, The Aftermath of the Ingalls Battle, The Handwriting on the Wall, Ambush at Lawson, and the End of the Trail.
