Gunfighter : An Autobiography

John Wesley Hardin, Introduction by Mark Manning

When outlaw John Wesley Hardin was imprisoned in Texas, this manuscript ended and now remains the only authentic autobiography of a cowboy. After his first murder at the age of 15, Hardin proceeded to live a life on the run, pursued by lynch mobs, bounty hunters, and assassins. He became the archetypal wanted man. A unique and gripping first-person account and seminal document of this period of American history.
