The Lost Frontier: Momentous Moments in the Old West You May Have Missed
by Rod Miller
This collection of short, action-filled stories of the Old West goes beyond the tales everyone knows of the OK Corral and the Dead Man’s Hand to focus on the gunfights, massacres, and daring deeds that are the stars of local historians but not featured in general histories of the old west. These events, while less well known, offer new territory for the Wild West buff to explore. Each chapter in this book tells a story that deserves to be remembered—either because of its importance, its intrigue, or just because it’s interesting. From cowboys and Indians to explorers and electricity to warfare and gunfights to royalty and rogues, the stories here cover a frontier West your education may have missed.
