This 1892 account of the five Marlow brothers and their tribulations in Young County, Texas, is now back in print and expertly edited and annotated by noted western historian Robert K. DeArment. After one Marlow brother killed a popular sheriff and was in turn murdered by bounty hunters, the other four brothers were arrested as accessories and jailed. Angry citizens ambushed the Marlows during a transfer to another town: two brothers were shot and killed, the other two severely wounded, and three mob members died in a shootout that inspired a John Wayne movie, ""The Sons of Katie Elder"".

ROBERT K. DeARMENT, a member of of the Wild West History Association, is the author of numerous books, including Bat Masterson, George Scarborough, and Alias Frank Canton. He lives in Sylvania, Ohio.
