Pub. Date:
The gunfighter as portrayed by Hollywood is a myth. The majority of gunfights in the American West were not battles between good and evil, but were drunken melees fought over women, money, or pride. Men such as "Wild Bill" Hickock, Ben Thompson, and "Billy the Kid" played unique roles in the drama of the western frontier.
