The early Texans were a breed apart. Outlaws and lawmen, ranchers and cowpokes, merchants and preachers, housewives and harlots - all were hard-working, independent, tough people of the frontier. In The Gunfighters, legendary U.S. Border Patrol agent, pistol shooter and big-game hunter Colonel Charles Askins brings hundreds of the colorful characters of early Texas vividly to life--McNelly's Rangers; "The Merry Outlaw" Sam Bass; Clyde Barrow and Bonnie Parker and the Texas Ranger who caught them, Captain Frank Hamer; the first Border Patrolmen; Comanche and Apache Indians; and many others.
