Description: Here for the first time is the complete life story of the controversial lawman Frank Canton, born Joe Homer, who, after conviction and imprisonment for armed robbery, escaped to change his name and transform himself into an ambitious, hard-working peace officer pursuing felons all over the western frontier for almost half a century.

Western historian Robert K. DeArment has used an exhaustive amount of primary materials -- court records, contemporary periodicals, and Canton's own writings and memorabilia collected during his lifetime -- to track down the facts of the mysterious Canton's early life and misdeeds in Texas; his participation in the Johnson County War as an agent of the Wyoming Stock Growers Association; his pursuit of the Daltons, Bill Doolin, and other outlaws in Oklahoma Territory; his experiences as a peace officer and gold prospector in Alaska; his career as a bounty hunter; and his ultimate success as adjutant general of the new state of Oklahoma.
