Summary
Here for the first time is the complete life story of the controversial lawman Frank Canton, born Joe Horner, 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. Canton was active in widely separate sections of the country - Texas, Wyoming, Oklahoma, and Alaska - during the last quarter of the nineteenth century and the first quarter of the twentieth. Western historian Robert K. DeArment has tracked 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. Based on exhaustive study of primary materials - court records, contemporary periodicals, and Canton's own writings and memorabilia collected during his lifetime - this fast-paced, objective biography will give readers unique insights into the legendary Canton's eventful life and a better understanding of how the rule of law was brought to the West by six-guns
