Sherri Knight's book about justice in nineteenth century Texas. 'Vigilantes to Verdicts' follows the stories of men and women such as John Wesley Hardin and Tom Wright as they faced judges and district attorneys determined to bring law and order to the Wild West.
This book is an important resource for the family historian and genealogical researcher, for those interested in studying the origins of Texas, and for anyone interested in the true story of the grit and fortitude of the people whose lives have so greatly effected the Northern Mexico and Southern United States of today.
