Description

A rollicking novel about Nat Love, an
African American cowboy with a famous nickname: Deadwood Dick.

Young Willie is on the run, having fled his
small Texas farm when an infamous local landowner murdered his father. A man
named Loving takes him in and trains him in the fine arts of shooting, riding,
reading, and gardening. When Loving dies, Willie re-christens himself Nat Love
in tribute to his mentor and heads west.

In Deadwood, South Dakota territory,
Nat becomes a Buffalo Soldier and is befriended by Wild Bill Hickok. After
winning a famous shooting match, Nat's peerless marksmanship and charm earn him
the nickname Deadwood Dick, as well as a beautiful woman. But the hellhounds
are still on his trail, and they brutally attack Nat Love's love. Pursuing the
men who have driven his wife mad, Nat heads south for a final, deadly showdown
against those who would strip him of his home, his love, his freedom, and his
life.
