Shot All to Hell: Bad Ass Outlaws, Gunfighters, and Law Men of the Old West

By Nick Vulich

General non-fiction, Biography & memoir, True crime | Paperback, eBook, Audiobook


For over 150 years the image of western bad men has thrilled readers and filled movie screens. Who hasn’t heard of Jesse James, the Dalton Brothers, Black Bart, or Belle Starr? They are as much a part of American folklore as George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, and Theodore Roosevelt. There’s something about the west that has brought out the best, and the worst in mankind. The funny thing is, a cult following has developed around many of these bandits, making them out to be something they weren’t. The sad truth is most outlaws led a short life that ended, either at the end of a rope, or with a bullet in the brain. Only a lucky few survived into the new century—Frank James, Cole Younger, and Emmett Dalton, to name a few.



For those of you unfamiliar with history-blogger, my name is Nick Vulich. I’m going to be brutally honest here, a lot of people don't like the way I write history. They say my books are short on interpretation, and long on description, meaning I'm concentrated more on telling the story than on why it happened, what it means, what could have, or should have happened. My answer to that is I'd rather sell the sizzle. The story is what's important to me. I want to watch it unravel, all fast and furious like. I jump from event to event, train robbery to bank robbery, to the gang being shot all to hell by the posse. There's no stopping. No slowing down to examine the why’s, the where's, the what if’s, the could have beens, the should have beens. Because those things were all irrelevant to the outlaws. They were hell-bent on beating it out of town without getting shot full of holes, of staying two steps ahead of the pursuing posse.
