They Called Him Buckskin Frank : The Life and Adventures of Nashville Franklyn Leslie Hardback
Part of the A.C. Greene Series series
Nashville Franklyn "Buckskin Frank" Leslie was a man of mystery during his lifetime.
His reputation has rested on two gunfights-both in storied Tombstone, Arizona-but he was much more than a deadly gunfighter.
Jack DeMattos and Chuck Parsons have combined their research efforts to help solve the questions of where Leslie came from and how he died. Leslie developed a reputation as a man to be left alone.
Such notables as the Earps, Doc Holliday, and John Ringo wisely avoided confrontations with him.
Leslie was a "lady killer" both figuratively and-in one celebrated incident-literally.
Beyond his gunfighting legacy, DeMattos and Parsons also explore Leslie's scouting with General Crook on the Great Plains and his alleged service as a deputy for Wild Bill Hickok in Abilene, Kansas.
