Written by the NYT best-selling author of Dodge City, Tom Clavin, Wild Bill is The definitive true story of Wild Bill Hickok, the first lawman of the Wild West. The book chronicles his life as a frontier soldier, Union spy, scout, lawman, gunfighter, gambler, showman, actor, and ladies man. A fabled character who crossed paths with mythical cowboy-era legends like General Custer and Buffalo Bill Cody, as well as Ben Thompson and other young toughs who were gunning for the sheriff with the quickest draw west of the Mississippi.
