Description

"The world is bobbing around," said Sam Bass the day he died. The day was Sunday, July 21, 1878--Sam's twenty-seventh birthday. Sam had done considerable bobbing around himself. He had been a cowboy, a gambler, a highwayman, and a train robber before he met his fate at Round Rock. His coups were many; his fame legendary. And the strangest thing of all is that he never killed a man until that last gunfight. "Wayne Gard has done a biography that bears the stamp of authenticity in every sentence. The writing of such a book about such a man is a rare achievement. The author has stuck to ascertainable facts and told a better story than the romancers."--Walter Prescott Webb "As good a biography of a desperado as one may hope to find."--Stanley Walker "Mr. Gard has taken an interesting subject and told his story simply and well. This kind of thing, based on careful research, is worth ten Western thrillers."--Joseph Henry Jackson
