    1. Hard knocks indeedA great book for anyone interested in a lawless era of the old west. I read this as research on Calamity Jane and found one interesting anecdote about her that I don't find in either of her very complete modern biographies. Portrays the environment that better known characters, like Wild Bill Hickok, inhabited.
