Praise for Max McCoy
“McCoy at his best, proving himself once again as a master of his craft.”
—USA Today Best-selling Author Ralph Cotton (A Breed Apart)
"Not only has McCoy captured Twain's voice with consummate skill, his account of Jesse's life is more compelling than the outlaw's manufactured legend. A brilliantly crafted look at two of our best-known icons."
—Fred Bean, author of Black Gold and Eden (Jesse)
