The Marshal

A Novel of Bill Tilghman
A novel by

This is a novel of the life of William "Bill" Matthew Tilghman, the most infamous lawman in the history of the West. He's the one man many historians describe as the greatest sheriff of the Wild West.The novel is told through the individual voices of some seventy plus people who knew him - kinfolk, lawmen, bartenders, prostitutes, friends and enemies. The result is an astonishing series of vignettes, each revealing a period of Tilghman's life, each rendered honestly and in a unique, evocative voice. Interspersed with legal documents, newspaper reports, and excerpts from Tilghman's autobiography, this is more than fictional biography - it's also a fascinating and accurate revelation of the time, place and people who settled and policed the frontier. It's full of historical detail, and the vernacular and idiom make for a convincing and compelling narrative, offering a wonderfully rich portrait of this highly attractive but forceful lawman
