"The roster of frontier gamblers reads like a who s who of the history of the American Wild West: Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, Luke Short, Doc Holliday, and Poker Alice, to name just a few, Perhaps it is the stereotyping of these figures by movies and television that has cast the western gambler into a folk hero. Author DeArment separates myth from reality as he records the history of the frontier gamblers between 1850 and 1910 as they covered all the territories of the day. Such a book on the subject is long overdue". -- Booklist.
