Those books have very much been about places. This book, focused on gunslingers and lawmen, is very much about people - the sort of people that populated many of the Western towns in the post-Civil War “Old West”.The gunslinger category is focused on people famous for handling a gun, who were not (primarily) in law enforcement. This could include scouts, outlaws, target shooters, and “quick draw artists”. Among the names in the Top 10: Annie Oakley, Butch Cassidy, John Wesley Hardin, Doc Holliday, Billy the Kid and Jesse James.The lawman category includes “gunmen” sheriffs, known as much for their shooting and quick draw ability as for their law enforcement skills, and also several professional law enforcement personnel who made their careers as sheriffs or marshals, and started to develop what later would become standard procedures for law enforcement officials in the 20th century.

Among the Top 10 in the lawman category: Wyatt Earp, Wild Bill Hickok, Pat Garrett, Allan Pinkerton and Seth Bullock.This edition contains 40 photos, with 14 of them in color.
