Wild West Crib Girl

Though his name isn't as widely known as that of Hickok, Billy The Kid or Doc Holliday, the greatest of all the old west gunfighters was Ben Thompson. Gunman, gambler, soldier on both sides of the border and Austin lawman, his life and death are the stuff of legend. "It is doubtful if in his time there was another man living who equalled him with a pistol in a life-and-death struggle" -Bat Masterson
