In celebration of Wild Bill Days in Deadwood, I will be signing copies of my newest book “The Illustrated Life and Times of Wild Bill Hickok”. Chock full of great art, rare photos, authoritative history, and that unique dose of Boze whimsy that True West Magazine readers have come to expect. A must have addition to every Western collection.

HISTORY ON THE LAWN: THE ILLUSTRATED LIFE AND TIMES OF WILD BILL HICKOK
Hear author Bob Boze Bell give the inside skinny on the man who created the prototype of the Western gunfighter and talk about the genesis of the legend and who benefited the most. Bell will also get into the weeds about the HBO® Deadwood series and who actually deserves credit for creating that world. Hint: it wasn't who you think it was!
Bring a lunch and enjoy the Historic Adams House lawn; 12:00 noon; admission by donation. In case of inclement weather, the lecture will be moved to the Homestake Adams Research and Cultural Center (HARCC).
