Summary
"Merciless killing in the nineteenth-century American West, as this unusual book shows, was far more complex than the bloodshed depicted in dime novels and western movies. The scholars interviewed here, experts on violence in the West, embrace a wide range of approaches and perspectives and challenge both traditional views of western expansion and politically correct ideologies"--Jacket
