Read the first 2 books in the series back in the 90’s and found this one at a local used book store and glad I did. Fun read for anyone that is familiar with Western Lore. Weaves a great fictional narrative that stays true to some of the facts and just plain old embellishes others. Gotta love a rascal like H.H. Lomax.

This is one of the funniest books you will ever read about Wyatt Earp and Tombstone.  The author wrote three books.  Billy the Kid and Jesse James are the other two.  He wrote them like he says he saw it and states he actually knew all three men.  Very good read.

“This book is one of a kind!”  March 4, 2005
H.H. Lomax is very, very funny.  This book is a must read as well as its sequel “The Redemption of Jesse James.”  You don’t have to like westerns to like this book.  Lomax doesn’t have a lot of friends.  At one point the whole town is betting on where he will get shot. Quote:

“For a few days it was fun waiting for you to get shot,” Corina informed me.”
“Yes,” Kate agreed, but no more.”
I sighed. “I’ve had fun not being shot at.”
“But you didn’t bet,” Corina pointed out.
“Where’d you think I’d get shot?” I asked her.
“Head”

I don’t understand why this book is out of print, but sometimes less is more.

I don’t normally read westerns, but a friend insisted I read this one.  After laughing my way through it–and thoroughly enjoying Lomax, the wacky main character–I managed to hunt down the other two books in the series.  I would be hard-pressed to say which one is the best; all of them feature well-drawn, engaging characters, and the author retells western legends in a sly and unpredictable way. Shame on the publisher for letting these gems go out of print!

“A fun and exciting book,” November 6, 1998
I really enjoyed this book. It let my imagination run wild. In fact, I thought it to better than Lonesome Dove.
