"Howard Bryan long ago perfected the art of listening to oldtimers, and drawing out their memories of the past. Reading this new collection of tales of the Southwest, I was delighted, astonished, and informed. For all who relish the unvarnished reality of America's western frontier, this book is a must". (Dee Brown)Although the details of western history have been mined and sifted through and assayed repeatedly over the last half century, once in a while a new vein is unearthed. Howard Bryan's latest book is just such a treasure. It offers a wealth of fascinating true stories of the old West that have never been published and are not available in any public archive. Bryan collected the material in the 1950s in extended informal interviews with old-timers who remembered events and people and a way of life that had by that time given way to the modern age. In those years Bryan heard and preserved dozens of new stories about famous characters such as Pancho Villa, Geronimo, Billy the Kid, and Black Jack Ketchum, many of whom the old-timers had known personally. Their recollections provide a vivid recreation of both everyday life on the frontier and extraordinary events and developments that shaped the history of the Southwest.The stories offer interesting glimpses of the role of ranchers and other settlers, cowboys, adventurers, soldiers, and lawmen in the history of the region. An English rancher named Montague Stevens tells of accompanying U.S. Cavalry troops on the trail of Apache war parties in the turbulent 1880s. Marietta Wetherill describes an incident in 1885, when she was almost kidnapped by Geronimo -- who believed she was an Indian child being held captive by whites. Oneold-timer saw Billy the Kid dead at Fort Sumner in 1881; another witnessed the last days of Geronimo at Fort Sill. Rancher and lawman Bob Lewis describes helping Adams in his fruitless search for the legendary Lost Adams Diggings in the late 1880s. Stories are told about Hen
