Format: Hardcover
This book really brings the old west to life! It is a very exciting tale, and the author's excellent research brought to light many new details about outlaws Dave Lant and Harry Tracy, their family backgrounds, and their escapades and three jail escapes together. Excellent photos too, many published for the first time. In the old book THE OUTLAW TRAIL by Charles Kelly, the photo which purports to be of Dave Lant isn't really him (it was Edwards, one of the other outlaws), and Ellison's book corrects this. Several other inaccuracies appeared in Kelly's version of the tale of Lant and Tracy ("The Law Comes to Brown's Hole" chapter of THE OUTLAW TRAIL), whereas Ellison's book sticks much closer to fact. I did get a little bogged down in the middle though, because I think he gave too many unimportant details from the sheriff's records, etc. And it's too bad that he wasn't able to solve the mystery about what happened to Dave Lant! A more recent book, 100 YEARS OF BROWN'S PARK AND DIAMOND MOUNTAIN by Dick & Daun DeJournette, DID finally reveal the rest of the story, what happened after Ellison's book ends -- Dave Lant used the alias Dave Stillwell and lived as an itinerant sheepherder in Colorado, hiding out for over 40 years. He had a fast horse which he trained to jump fences, and kept it saddled & nearby at all times, ready to make a fast getaway. They interviewed many old-timers who knew him, some of whom are still living, and have many previously unpublished photos too. So I would highly recommend Ellison's book, but I would even more highly recommend the DeJournette's book, for anyone who wants to know what finally happened to the outlaw Dave Lant. There is even a romantic love story involved!
