William Preston Longley (1851-1878) went on a murderous rampage over the last few years of his life. Once he was arrested in 1877, and subsequently sentenced to hang, his name became known statewide as an outlaw and a murderer. Longley created and reveled in his self-centered image as a fearsome, deadly gunfighter. In truth, Longley was not the daring figure that he attempted to paint.

"John Wesley Hardin kills men just to see them kick. On one occasion he charged the town of Cuero all alone with a yell of "rats to your holes." Such a shutting up of shops had not been seen since the panic. He is said to have killed thirty men & is a dead shot."--Texas Ranger Pidge, Austin Daily Democrat Statesman. Thus spoke one lawman about John Wesley Hardin, easily the most feared & fearless of all the gunfighters in the West. Nobody knows the exact number of his victims - perhaps as few as twenty or as many as fifty. In his way of thinking, Hardin never shot a man who did not deserve it. Seeking to gain insight into Hardin's homicidal mind, Leon Metz describes how Hardin's bloody career began in post-Civil War Central Texas, when lawlessness & killings were commonplace, & traces his life of violence until his capture & imprisonment in 1878. After his pardon in 1895 he wrote an autobiography, but did not live to see it published. Within a few months of his release, John Selman gunned him down in an El Paso saloon. "Readers seeking a solid understanding of Hardin in a fast-paced writing style that is both informative & enlightening will want to avail themselves of John Wesley Hardin: Dark Angel of Texas."--WILD WEST. LEON C. METZ is the author of fourteen books about the West, among them John Selman, Gunfighter; Pat Garret; & Dallas Stoudenmire, all published by the University of Oklahoma Press.
