He was the last warrior, and his lonely and savage duel with the United States Cavalry created a legend as bold as that of Cochise and Geronimo.

One could only hope that Henry Plummer would sample some of that frontier justice--and soon. Henry, the sheriff of Virginia City, Montana, looked every bit like a gentleman. But under the facade was a rapist, blackmailer and murderer--one of the most notorious outlaws the West had ever encountered." from back cover
