About the Author
G.R. Williamson lives in Kerrville, Texas, with his wife and trusty chihuahua Shooter. He spent his early years living in Crystal City, Texas, which is located twenty miles west of King Fisher’s ranch in Dimmitt County. As a Boy Scout, he hunted for arrowheads on the land that once belonged to King Fisher, and he fished in the alligator waters of Espantosa Lake.
He has written many articles on Texas historical figures and events in Texas history. In addition, he has penned several western film screenplays that make their way to California from time to time. Currently he is at work on two nonfiction books-one on the last old-time Texas bank and train robber and the other on frontier gambling.

Terrific book. The Texas Pistoleers is a fun read - factual but very well told. The writer did a bang up good job of thoroughly researching the lives of these almost forgotten Texas folk heroes. He paints a vivid picture of the English born gunfighter, Ben Thompson and the outlaw-lawman, King Fisher. The book is loaded with photographs depicting events that eventually led to their ambush at the Vaudeville Theater in San Antonio. One in particular is a rare picture of King Fisher and his wife Sarah at the time of their marriage which shows the pearl handle of one of his Colt pistols. I could heartily recommend this book to any fan of the American West. I sure hope there are more books coming from this expert storyteller.
