Nat Love or is it Deadwood Dick?

THE BEST SHOT IN THE WEST (Chronicle Books 2012) is a GN format biography of Nat Love AKA Deadwood Dick, one of the heroic cowboys of the Old West. Born into slavery, Love became a thing of legend. Patricia and Fred McKissack have teamed up with GN illustrator Randy Duburke (YUMMY) to tell Nat Love's story with a few embellishments. The Old West and the lot of the Black cowboys come to life in this GN biography. Stampedes, raids, rustlers, and outlaws make for an action packed tale that is part truth and part tall tale. <151>
