This is a list of Old West gunfighters, referring to outlaws or lawmen, of the American frontier who gained fame or notoriety during the American Wild West or Old West. Some listed were never gunfighters. The term gunslinger is a modern, 20th-century invention, often used in cinema or other media to refer to men in the American Old West who had gained a reputation as being dangerous with a gun. A gunfighter may or may not be an outlaw or a lawman.

Louis L'Amour, one of America's best-loved and most authentic western writers, penned more than 125 novels in a thirty-year career. His heroes, many of whom appear in various volumes, had strong views about right and wrong, and they also had great respect for the environment and for the rights of the Native American.

The American Wild West includes the history, folklore, people, and events of the mid-1800s to the beginning of the 20th century (though some people date it up to the 1920s). During this time of expansion from coast to coast, many people rose to fame through their exciting (and often illegal) lives. Cole toured the nation with Frank James giving speeches about the Wild West. He later became a Christian and renounced his criminal past and died peacefully 4 years later, with 11 bullets still embedded in his body.

I ordered this book for my son who teaches US History (it was on his wish list). After receiving the book I ordered another one for my brother-in-law who is a big Louis L'amour fan. My husband, after reviewing the books, has decided that he too wants a copy. So, I am placing an order for a third book!!

Great pictures and narrative. You might accidently learn a little history while reading.
This slim but mighty volume serves a number of purposes. First and foremost, it is a worthy companion to the novels of Louis L'Amour, and sheds historical light on his fictional west. While I loved "How The West Was Won" - one of the very first movies besides Clint Walker's "Yellowstone Kelly" that I ever went to see, Mr. Wexler's book brings the Rawlings family, particularly Zeb and Linus into proper historical perspective. He also does the same for the famous Sackett characters, and others like "Utah Blaine" here as well.

Secondly, it is a coffee table book filled with artifacts, paintings and graphic images of those who fought for, settled, and left their mark on the West - the good, the bad, and yep, the ugly too. Wexler might have provided a stronger narrative on the Indian and the Wars for the Plains and the Desert; he did not. Those wonderful sepia toned photos of Cowboys on the plains are also conspiciously lacking; and I'm surprised he was so minimal when it came to discussing Buffalo Bill Cody. There are no discussion nor imagery of the great scout's "Wild West Shows" - but then again, the old Colonel never really passed through Mr. L'Amour's novels.

Wyatt Earp and the dynasty of Western Outlaws, plus women of the west, good and bad, proper and soiled get their due; there are also fine photos of the gambling tables, the scout's gear and acroutments, the ghost towns. If you already have coffee table books on "Western History" then there's not much difference about this one from the others save the homage to Mr. L'Amour...but for the Western History beginner, or for someone who would love a good and new coffee table Western History book, this slim volume makes an purdy awesome book.

"The Wild, Wild West of Louis L'Amour" is also a companion book accompanying the wonderful new "Guns and Gamblers" exhibit at the Desert Caballeros Western Museum in Wickenburg, Arizona.
