His career spanned the West itself, from the days of reckless cowboys and their long-barrel colts to an age of mobsters, tommy guns, and cars. Now, the last days of his towering story are told.

Bill Tilghman was the real thing, a lawman who wore his badge for one reason alone: to bring criminals to justice. Master novelist Matt Braun captures the final days of this extraordinary manhunter-- when he faces a heroic fight on the bloody, corrupt streets of Cromwell, Oklahoma. The saga of a man who would not back down and the woman who loved him to the end, You Know My Name tells the story of a land swiftly vanishing into a new era: the legendary American frontier.

About the author (1999)

Matt Braun is a fourth-generation Westerner, steeped in the tradition and lore of the frontier era. His books reflect a heritage rich with the truths of that bygone time. Raised among the Cherokee and Osage tribes, Braun learned their traditions and culture, and their philosophy became the foundation of his own beliefs. Like his ancestors, he has spent most of his life wandering the mountains and plains of the West. His heritage and his contribution to Western literature resulted in his appointment by the Governor of Oklahoma as a Territorial Marshal.

Braun is the author of more than forty novels and four nonfiction works, including BLACK FOX, which was made into a CBS miniseries, and ONE LAST TOWN, which was made into a TNT movie called YOU KNOW MY NAME. Western Writers of America awarded Braun the prestigious Golden Spur Award for THE KINCAIDS. He is also the recipient of the Cowboy Spirit Award and was inducted into the Cowboy Hall of Fame in 1999.
