Summary
Most writers are impressed by three things in the life of Clay Allison : That he had a tooth pulling bout with a dentist; that he rode the streets of Canadian, Texas clothed only in a gun belt; and that he went back to Tennessee to marry his childhood sweetheart. Perhaps none of these incidents are hardly capable of exciting the imagination of the intelligent reader, but they do tend to stir up curiosity about this famous Western character. Eleven years of research and thirty thousand miles of travel are props on which the author built this story. It is not surprising that he should come up a human being who is so surprisingly capable of feats more commendable than those other Western legendary characters hit upon by most writers of Western folklore, Exciting tales of gun slingers are not always true tales. Here we find have both combined -- Back cover.
