Abstract:

Nat Love, the one and only Deadwood Dick of the dime novel era, writes down his version of certain events, straightening out numerous misconceptions raised in the popular and sanitized dime novels. Author Joe R. Lansdale's stories about Nat Love are based loosely on the real Nat Love, who may have told a few windies about his time in the West, but at the same time revealed that African-Americans of that era were not all cooks and custodians. In fact, a full third of the cowboys of the Wild West days were African-American, Hispanic, or of mixed blood. This is a tribute to the real deal, as well as to the great mythology of the Old West.
