Ben Thompson was the foremost "Shootist" of his time. A gambler by profession, he plied his trade from the border of Old Mexico to Denver and Dodge City, and countless other boomtowns. His personal code of honour allowed neither insult nor physical threat from another man. History records that those who provoked his anger were soon bound for the graveyard - He never lost a gunfight.

Author Biography - Matt Braun
MATT BRAUN was a fourth generation Westerner, steeped in the tradition and lore of the frontier era. His books reflect a heritage rich with the truths of that bygone time. Raised among the Cherokee and Osage tribes, Braun learned their traditions and culture, and their philosophy became the foundation of his own beliefs. Like his ancestors, he spent most of his life wandering the mountains and plains of the West. His heritage and his contribution to Western literature resulted in his appointment by the Governor of Oklahoma as a Territorial Marshal.Braun was the author of forty-seven novels and four nonfiction works, including "Black Fox," which was made into a CBS miniseries. Western Writers of America awarded Braun the prestigious Spur Award for his novels "Dakota "and "The Kincaids "and the 2004 Wister Award for Lifetime Achievement in Western Literature. Braun passed away in 2016.
