Description

Spur Award-winning author, Dale L. Walker continues what he started in Legends and Lies, by uncovering the truth around some of the American West's most famous and infamous figures. Leaving no figure sacred and no stone unturned, Walker dives deep into some of the most enduring myths and legends of the Old West:

*What was the real story behind the death of Meriwether Lewis--suicicide or homicide?

*Did Pat Garrett really kill Billy the Kid, or did the Kid fake his own death and live to a ripe old age?

*What was the real relationship between Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane?

*And who was the woman who claimed to have proof that she was their daughter?

*Was Jack London killed or did he take his own life?

*Who burned Wolf House to the ground?

Asking these and many more questions, The Calamity Papers sheds some necessary light on our history by taking a closer look at some its heroes.
