Pistol Pete, Veteran of the Old West (Hardcover)
The autobiography of Frank "Pistol Pete" Eaton, a one-time cowboy, scout, Indian fighter, trail rider, and Deputy United States Marshall. At the age of 15, the post commander at Fort Gibson dubbed Eaton "Pistol Pete" when he outshot everyone at the fort. As a youth, Eaton avenged his father's death when he was shot in cold blood by the Campseys and Ferbers, former Confederates who called themselves Regulators. Eaton's colloquial narrative offers a vivid portrait of the Old West; a colorful, humorous, violent, and moving picture of law and lawlessness in Indian Territory.
