Black, Red, and Deadly: Black and Indian Gunfighters of the Indian Territories

Art Burton

Eakin Press, Austin, 1991. First Edition.

Pretty much perfect! An excellent copy.

 

This is an incredibly cool and wild history of black and Indian gunfighters in the Indian territories of the 1880s. With stories about figures like Ezekiel Proctor, a Cherokee gunfighter with a treaty between himself and the US Government, the Indian “Lighthorsemen” police force, and Sam Sixkiller, among others, I really can’t overstate how fun, fascinating, and well written this book is. It should be a classic of wild west literature, and maybe it one day will. Highly recommended.
