Summary
Number ten in a series of works on Texas cowboys, outlaws and the west, this new edition of the biography of Bill Longley includes new and updated information based on the location and identification of his remains. The work attempts to paint an accurate picture of Longley, a outlaw who murdered several men, and to separate true facts from the self aggrandizing autobiographical writings the gunman penned from his jail cell. The work includes several photographs as well as reproductions of primary documents. Miller is an independent historian and the author of several biographies of Texas outlaws.
