Summary
Nashville Franklyn ?Buckskin Frank? Leslie was a man of mystery during his lifetime. His reputation has rested on two gunfights?both in storied Tombstone, Arizona?but he was much more than a deadly gunfighter. Jack DeMattos and Chuck Parsons have combined their research efforts to help solve the questions of where Leslie came from and how he died. Leslie developed a reputation as a man to be left alone. Such notables as the Earps, Doc Holliday, and John Ringo wisely avoided confrontations with him. Leslie was a ?lady killer? both figuratively and?in one celebrated incident?literally. Beyond his gunfighting legacy, DeMattos and Parsons also explore Leslie?s scouting with General Crook on the Great Plains and his alleged service as a deputy for Wild Bill Hickok in Abilene, Kansas
