Description

Learn More about the Book

Midnight raids, blazing six-shooters, and dangling ropes played frequent and vital roles in the taming of the West. And in this true account of justice-and sometimes vengeance-on the frontier, Wayne Gard ably relates how determined frontiersmen and heroic women achieved order before they had formal law. Colorful Roy Bean, most famous of the frontier oracles, who dispensed liquor with one hand and justice with the other, stalks through the pages, along with Sam Houston, Watt Moorman, Judge Almond 9who would not tolerate long speeches by lawyers because they cut down on his fine), the feuding Grahams and Tewksburys, and Jacksons and Goodbreads, with their violent outbreaks of killing. Frontier Justice was among the books chosen by a committee of distinguished scholars for inclusion in the permanent White House Liberty of important American books on the nation's history. "In addition to having complete command of his subject, Mr. Gard presents it with the skill one would expect from a journalist of long experience. His book is a welcome, balancing addition to the literature of the wild and woolly 'West."-Choice "The research is thorough and well done....Such a volume as this will find a hearty welcome from the general reader...and the public would be better informed on the nation's history if more books like this were written."-The Journal of Southern History "Frontier Justice makes clear the sometimes almost indefinable line between the so-called 'badmen' and the minions of order when operating beyond the frontiers of statutory law...The book is a distinct contribution to Western Americana."-Nebraska History
