4 big stars! An outstanding history of outlaws, bank robbers, and killers. How the ‘old west’ ended with a bang; the notorious Dalton gang brought the era to a close with violence and mayhem. Clavin has a writing style that is sparse-just the facts but in an entertaining way. He meanders into side stories that bring a broad picture into tight focus. Very enjoyable and well done. Highly recommended. I was given a copy-this is my own opinion.
