Stand Off at High Noon: Another Battle over the Truth in the Mythic Wild West (Hardback)

£15.95
Pre-order for despatch on publication.

Synopsis

Where is the head of Pancho Villa really buried?

Did Butch Cassidy die the way mainstream history says he did?

Was the real Davy Crocket a hero of historic proportions during the Battle of the Alamo or a sniveling coward?

Is the Lost Dutchman Mine real or a total farce?

These questions and many more will be explored in the exciting book, Stand Off at High Noon.

Controversy sells. There is no doubt about it. Whether one is discussing the lives of contemporary politicians or figures from our past, the public loves to continuously debate the sincerity of these individuals and subjects. Name recognition and the enduring popularity of these historic characters is a great selling point for this volume. Most people in the general populace are familiar with the names Davy Crockett and the Donner Party (amongst the many others featured within the pages) giving this work access to a wide and varied audience. Fans and detractors of these characters alike will enjoy the entertaining narrative and opposing opinions of the authors.
