the Johnson County War
"The author was a reporter sent out by a Chicago newspaper to cover the Johnson County War. Although written in the form of fiction, this book calls actual names and relates factual events as the author witnessed them." (Adams). It is said that noted bibliographer Jeff Dykes never found in fifty years a copy for his collection.
