The year was 1878. Future legends of the Old Westlawmen Charlie Bassett, Bat Masterson, Wyatt Earp, and Bill Tilghmanpatrolled the unruly streets of Dodge City, Kansas, then known as "the wickedest little city in America." When a cattle baron fled town after allegedly shooting the popular dancehall girl Dora Hand, these four menall sharpshooters who knew the surrounding harsh, desertlike terrainhunted him down, it was said, like "thunder over the prairie." The posse's legendary ride across the desolate landscape to seek justice influenced the men's friendship, careers, and feelings about the justice system. This account of that event is a fast-paced, unforgettable glimpse into the Old West.
