DeArment's Bat book
Sat Aug 13, 17:27

Hey, Bob!

About 1/5 (my guess) of the book are contemporary news articles, personal letters, etc. I couldn't agree more, this is the correct way to put a "History of..." together. And it's a VERY good read.

Nice to meet you again, Mr. Cash! Still doing the good work down there in Texas?

      Gunfighter in Gotham is a fantastic read.

        I don't believe that was a very popular book but I too enjoyed it.

          Back to the DeArment book. The Clay Allison trees Dodge City incident is very cleverly displayed for what it was and what is wasn't! Pam!!!! How are you?

                  I miss the days of the sobriquet. There were some fun and interesting pen names.
