The must-have companion to Bill O'Reilly's historic series Legends and Lies: The Real West, a fascinating, eye-opening look at the truth behind the western legends we all think we know

How did Davy Crockett save President Jackson's life only to end up dying at the Alamo? Was the Lone Ranger based on a real lawman-and was he an African American? What amazing detective work led to the capture of Black Bart, the "gentleman bandit" and one of the west's most famous stagecoach robbers? Did Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid really die in a hail of bullets in South America? Generations of Americans have grown up on TV shows, movies and books about these western icons. But what really happened in the Wild West? All the stories you think you know, and others that will astonish you, are here--some heroic, some brutal and bloody, all riveting. Included are the legends featured in Bill O'Reilly's ten week run of historic episodic specials-from Kit Carson to Jesse James, Wild Bill Hickok to Doc Holliday-- accompanied by two bonus chapters on Daniel Boone and Buffalo Bill and Annie Oakley.

Frontier America was a place where instinct mattered more than education, and courage was necessary for survival. It was a place where luck made a difference and legends were made. Heavily illustrated with spectacular artwork that further brings this history to life, and told in fast-paced, immersive narrative, Legends and Lies is an irresistible, adventure-packed ride back into one of the most storied era of our nation's rich history.

Gift item but extreemely fast delivery.

I purchased this book as a gift for my father and, as such, have not read it. I would like to say though, WM.com sent it extremely fast and that was with the free shipping for orders over $50, I also bought three DVD box sets. I was extremely happy with this purchase.

Two Bill O'Reilly books

I give him the two books and he was delighted. Of course he hasn't read them yet, but I'm sure he'll enjoy them as he's enjoyed all of the other books that Bill has co-written.

A nicely done book pro...

A nicely done book profiling twelve legends of the early years and old west of our country. Packed with information on these characters of the past supporting some of the legends along with a fair amount of debunking. And the volume to debunk is thanks to the commercial marketing that sprung up over the years from the dime novels to full blown Hollywood productions. I was familiar with some of the stories having read up on a number of the people here but the profile on the Lone Ranger was entirely new to me and entertaining.
