I would not recommend this novel to anyone who is truly interested in what life was like in the southwestern frontier.
While the title of this work of fiction purports to deliver "a widely-accepted but unverified story", I do not believe most knowledgeable readers on the life of Mickey Free will ever "widely accept" this hash work of the famous scout's life.
It would be far better to read NO book whatsoever on the life of Mickey Free than to read this one. For anyone who knows anything about the life of Mickey Free, realize there are much better sources available both in book form and OLD WEST magazine from the early 1970's.
For me, A. Kinney Griffith wrote it all, he not only knew these people but also lived with many. The book by Griffith reprints the same material available years ago that appeared in Joe Small's publication, OLD WEST magazine. If you are truly interested in the Mickey Free of history avoid this book by Kerry Newcomb which is for this reader full of misinformation and nonsense.
If you desire further comments concerning the Griffith book, please see my February 21, 2005, Amazon small review of the 1969 A. Kinney Griffith book. I yet have the book in my library, and have treasured reading it several times
It's fortunate Ole Hosstail ain't still living to see this batch of inaccurate fiction.
