224pp. Octavo [22 cm] Full gray publisher's cloth with black titles on the front board and backstrip. Illustrated with never-before-published photographs taken by Randolph Madison during the chase in 1909. Good. The spine is rolled, and the spine ends and corners of the covers are gently bumped. There is a large area of heavy darkening on the front endpaper. The price-clipped dust jacket is in good only condition as well. Age-toned, and with areas of dark staining. Chipped at the edges.
Winner of the James D. Phelan award for non-fiction in 1960. Basis for the Robert Redford/Robert Blake film 'Tell Them Willie Boy Is Here'. Usually cited as the "The Wests Last Famous Manhunt."
