Glad you like the topic and content. I know of no single book that deals with this subject. Many of the older books dealing with Ringo tended to repeat tall tales and were thin on facts. I have not read the recently republished book about Ringo that ChipProf mentioned, John Ringo, King of the Cowboys - His Life and Times from the Hoo Doo War to Tombstone, by David Johnson. I repeat, I have not read this book. Continue to stop back since we will no doubt be adding more information here.

That's for checking on the table for me and the mention of Tucker. I'll check and see what I find on him. I have been traveling over the last 5 days and would have responded sooner but was without computer access.
Did you read Bob Boze Bells blog about the possibility of John Travolta and Tom Cruise teaming up to do a remake of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid. Remember my script Faro....

What a shame if they are to do a western to remake one that could never be as good as the original.
I have a copy of a warrant for the arrest of one Wyatt Earp and John Shown signed by the US Federal Judge for the western district. You want a copy ?
