"This immense book, by a noted bibliographer of the West, is beyond question the fairest, most complete and most learned evaluation of printed references to western outlaws to appear until now....It will stand for many years, solid as a rock amid the flooding maelstrom of western myth and legend, pointing up the truth about those men of the past who lived by their wits and their guns. It will be impossible for anyone studying that era and such men to do so without reference to this volume."?Los Angeles Times "Adams turns again to the books and histories of the western gunmen and outlaws and critically examines 425 titles, most of which rate as ?burs? under his saddle. Ramon Adams? plea is that the writers must stop compounding each other?s errors into legend. In this book, with great skill and without malice, he has pointed out past mistakes. His book should be in the essential baggage of every writer on western outlaws and on every library shelf."?American West "The value of this book to writers and historians of the badman tradition cannot be overestimated, for Adams has replaced rumors, myths, and falsehoods with documented historical facts. It is a book for all conscientious students of and writers on the American West; henceforth, any writer of ?authentic Western history? who refuses to check with Adams should be, as the judge said to Billy the Kid in one legend, 'hanged by the neck until dead, dead, dead.'"?Southwest Review… (mer)

Find all your books called "Real Stories of the Old West," "I Rode with Wild Bill," "I was in School with Jesse James," "The Story of the Only Survivor of Little Big Horn," and the like, then check with Ramon Adams's reviews. You may have wondered if some of these memoirs and first-hand accounts were a little overblown and you were right to feel that way. The only noble truth that emerges from the history of the great, mythic West is that Calamity Jane was a dead ringer for Doris Day. Adams is actually pretty deadpan as he hilariously eviscerates some of the great legends.
