The Saga of Tom Horn: The Story of a Cattlemen's War : with Personal Narratives, Newspaper Accounts, and Official Documents and Testimonies
When some radicals in the powerful Wyoming Stock Growers Association turned to this dead shot for help, cattle thieves were duly warned; blood was shed and Horn was implicated but never charged. Then on July 18, 1902, Willie Nickell, the fourteen-year-old son of a sheepman, was shot. Horn was convicted, but his hanging did not settle the specter of guilt.
