On July 14, 1882, the notorious Texas gunman, John Peters Ringo, was found beneath a blackjack oak tree some distance from Tombstone, Arizona, with a bullet in his head. Colonel Henry Hooker, Billy Breakenridge, Wyatt Earp, and Doc Holliday were all suspected of doing him in, but charges were never brought against anyone. Was this going to be an unsolved mystery? The answer could lie in this blending of fact with fiction woven into the lives of these famous characters of the Old West, and those of the less-well-known Frank Buckskin Leslie, bartender, part-time army scout, and awesome gunfighter; the woman he wanted--the beautiful and fiercely independent Nell Cashman; and Louis Hancock, a big, black rancher determined to avenge a heinous crime.The author has been an adventure film producer and lecturer, and a past director of the Los Angeles Adventurers Club. He has traveled extensively throughout South America, Africa, Mexico, and the southwestern United States, and through his numerous appearances on television here and abroad, became known as The Legend Hunter. He rafted down the Amazon River, is credited with the discovery of a Pre-Inca city in the Andes Mountains of Peru, and the discovery of Spanish Conquistador armor once exhibited at the Southwestern Museum in Los Angeles. Romain Wilhelmsen also made international news after being attacked by bandits while exploring in the mountains of Columbia, and wounded in the gunfight which ensued. His accounts of these exploits have been published in a number or men's magazines. He was born in Detroit, Michigan, and presently lives in East Lansing, Michigan.
