By the Autumn of 1899 the coffin has all but closed shut on the American Wild West.

Men once considered the quintessence of the term, “desperado” now seek legitimate standing in their respective community.  Some, even long for redemption.

Enter Four such men; each legendary in his own right. The elusive desperado Frank James, divisive lawman Virgil Earp, his brother and confidence man James Earp, and a notorious assassin of cattle thieves, named Tom Horn.

Various authenticated accounts detail a chance encounter, wherein these men arrived separately in the burgeoning metropolis of Nacogdoches, Texas on a lazy Sunday morning, sought respite in a local Saloon, and quickly found themselves entertaining adventurous children. Hastily crafting and illustrating tales of the West, the men threw adventure around the room; dismissing the many myths surrounding their more infamous exploits, and denying the existence of “notches” on their guns.

However, when finally called upon to dispatch a new breed of desperado terrorizing local citizens, these western legends proved every one of those myths true — and in high style.

Carve another notch.

  1. The John Williams track from “The Cowboys” was removed from the uploader’s YouTube account for copyright reasons. So I picked another great piece of music I listened to for inspiration while writing my screenplay and later novelization of “Western Legend.”

    I hope you enjoy it.
