Description - Vigilantes of Montana by Thomas J. Dimsdale

Gold, land, jealousy, and murder--all are elements of this classic tale of the Montana Territory, written in 1864 as a vindication of the actions of the Vigilantes who hanged Sheriff William Henry Handy Plumer of Bannack, Montana. Now beautifully reprinted with a foreword by R. E. Mather, prominent Western historian and co-author of Hanging the Sheriff, A Biography of Henry Plummer, readers can delve into the history behind Montana's rough beginnings for themselves and uncover the controversy behind the legend of the Vigilantes.
