By Autumn 1899 the coffin has all but closed on the American Wild West. Men once considered the quintessence of the term "desperado" now seek legitimate standing in their respective community. Some even long for redemption. Enter four such men, each legendary in his own right. Elusive desperado Frank James, divisive lawman Virgil Earp, his brother and confidence man James Earp, and notorious assassin of cattle thieves Tom Horn. Authenticated accounts detail a chance encounter wherein these men arrived separately in Nacogdoches, Texas on a lazy Sunday morning, sought respite in a local saloon and quickly found themselves entertaining adventurous children. Hastily crafting and illustrating tales of the West, the men threw adventure around the room; dismissing the many myths surrounding their more infamous exploits and denying the existence of "notches" on their guns. However, when finally called upon to dispatch a new breed of desperado terrorizing local citizens, these western legends proved every one of those myths true--and in high style. Carve another notch.
