In 2015, I went back to 1837 to prevent Wild Bill Hickok from being killed. This happened when Jack McCall got the drop on him and shot him in the back. Wild Bill usually sat with his back to the wall but on this date he had his back to the door. I was able to instruct Wild Bill how to keep from getting killed. I don't know if Wild Bill appreciated what I did. The story tells why I say this.

This is a collection of seven fast moving short, western adventure stories all of which are available separately as Novelettes. These stories contain some violence mostly in the form of gun fighting. The adventures include wagon trains, cattle ranching and western bar room scenes.
Although this novel is a work of fiction most of the main characters are people that lived during this era in North America’s pioneering past. Those men and women that struggled far from the comforts of the larger cities to open up and to tame the vast wilderness that was known simply as ‘The Territories’, had rich stories to tell.
Hickok had warned his friend, David Tutt, there'd be trouble if he challenged Hickok. But Tutt called him out anyway, taking careful aim with his pistol. Hickok stood his ground across the plaza, with his pistol drawing a bead on Tutt. Both guns spoke as one, but Tutt lost the fight with Hickok's bullet through his heart. This is the story of Wild Bill Hickok, the man and the legend.
