The unforgettable stories of two legendary American frontiersmen by Randy Lee Eickhoff and Leonard C. Lewis in one low-priced edition!

And Not to Yield

Nurtured by devout, staunchly Abolitionist parents, young James Butler Hickok leaves their hardscrabble farm to homestead in Kansas. He effortlessly succeeds as a rancher, gambler, Union soldier, lawman, merchant, marksman--and lusty lover. But Hickok's many talents did not bring him peace. Guided and plagued by phantoms from his past, Hickok must fulfill his destiny through his travels. From bleak upstate New York to the rugged Badlands, from New York City's Broadway to the Rockies, from the Mississippi riverboats to the Great Salt Flats, here is the compelling odyssey of the gun-slinging American icon Wild Bill Hickok.

Bowie

Jim Bowie, the descendant of Highland Scots, grew up riding alligators and working the field on the Texas frontier. Taught three languages and a sense of honor, he went on to live a life filled with brawls and battles, loves and losses, a life cut short at the Battle of the Alamo in 1836. This is his story, as told by those who, whether they loved or hated him, were united by their awe of this amazing frontiersman.
