Publisher's Summary

"A bullet to the front of the head demonstrates good marksmanship. A bullet to the back of the head demonstrates good judgment."

So quotes John Wesley Hardin, one of the infamous killers of the old west. But, like modern day killer Henry Lee Lucas, was he more of a bragger than a killer? Or was he more of a serial killer than a gun slinger? Was it the loss of his only love, Jane Bowen that drove him over the edge? Or was he just born to be a killer? Find out.

Author Brian Lee Tucker takes a new perspective on the many tales about John Wesley Hardin, painting a completely different picture of the man who claimed to have killed 42 people without feeling any remorse or guilt, and even bragging about his heinous crimes.

Highly suggested

If you want to learn more about John Wesley Hardin and his life, this is a great resource. According to this book, John Wesley Hardin was one of America’s first celebrity outlaws. It is fascinating to see JohnWesley Hardin's transition from a naive farm boy to a hardened killer. Even though Hardin believes all his killings were justified and goes to dome length to insist that others always wronged him first or shot at him and so he was only defending himself, you can see in the events how Hardin becomes quicker and quicker to kill and for less reason even in his telling of the story. I highly recommend it!

Happy I found this

A great audiobook if you want to retrace the life of John Wesley Hardin. The details are many, but they pull together to create an intricate puzzle of John Wesley Hardin and his perception of himself in relation to the rest of humanity.

Very interesting

I really liked this book although it did confuse me in some places. I thought there was always something I was missing and had to re-listen certain parts. I will probably have to listen to this book again.
