The second edition, after the first of 1890 which Adams describes as "exceedingly rare...the first edition is so scarce that some collectors think the 1892 edition the only one published." The present edition contains an attestation of veracity by seven old- timers not included in the first edition. "Midnight - the period of outlawry, lynch law and Indian warfare - endures for 393 pages; while but 13 pages suffice to tell the sad tale of the dawn's coming" - Eberstadt. Includes much material on the Talbot raid on Caldwell, and the bank robbers Henry Brown and Ben Wheeler. ADAMS HERD 843. ADAMS SIX-GUNS 383. REESE, SIX SCORE 39. HOWES F353. RADER 1472.
