Wild Bill Hickok; The True Story Of His Last Six Weeks
Wild Bill Hickok; The True Story About His Last Six Weeks is the first glimpse into the final days in the life of one of the west’s most colorful and legendary gunfighter, Wild Bill Hickok. After discovering the whereabouts of a historical journal, for the first time ever, these revelations describing the events leading up to Hickok’s famous killing are revealed.
Based on a recently discovered journal written in 1876 in Deadwood, South Dakota, we now know of Hickok’s final thoughts, his actions, his liaisons with Calamity Jane, and his friendship with young Nathan Bernard, the diary’s author. Only a handful of people have seen the journal and only Dan Goldstein was given permission to write about its contents.
Now you can discover the never before told story in Mr. Goldstein’s new book; Wild Bill Hickok, The True Story About His Last Six Weeks. Find out how John Wesley Hardin plays into the story and Bernard’s connection to Wyatt Earp.
Hickok befriends young Nathan and a father/son relationship blossoms, only to end abruptly after six short weeks. Bill teaches Nathan to shoot and Nathan promises to watch Bill’s back. Some of us know how Bill was murdered. Most of us even know the now infamous hand he was holding when he was gunned down. But, only a handful (until now) know what transpired those final days in the life of a true western legend and a gunslinger that was proud to call the Black Hills Territory home.
The book is essential reading for all Hickok fans and lovers of the “Wild West” and its legendary characters and heroes.
