About This Item

Glendale, CA: Arthur H. Clark Company, 1953. First Edition. Large 8vo. 343 pp. Index. Maps; Illustrations. Red cloth with gilt lettering in fine condition. Western Frontiersmen Series, IV. "A most interesting book of reminiscences, with some material on many of the outlaws of Oklahoma and Texas, telling, among other things, of the Dalton raid on Coffeyville and the Henry Brown raid on the bank of Medicine Lodge. It also has much information on Billy the Kid and some on John Wesley Hardin." - Adams One-Fifty #46. "Nelson was a cowhand throughout the South Plains for fifteen years covered in this book. An interesting and detailed first-hand account of cowboy life in the area. Debo's notes add clarity without detracting from Nelson's narrative." - Six-Score #30. (Clarke & Brunet 164).
