Young Willie is on the run, having fled his small Texas farm when an infamous local landowner murdered his father. A man named Loving takes him in and trains him in the fine arts of shooting, riding, reading, and gardening. When Loving dies, Willie re-christens himself Nat Love in tribute to his mentor, and heads west. In Deadwood, South Dakota territory, Nat becomes a Buffalo Soldier and is befriended by Wild Bill Hickok. After winning a famous shooting match, Nat's peerless marksmanship and charm earn him the nickname Deadwood Dick, as well as a beautiful woman. But the hellhounds are still on his trail, and they brutally attack Nat Love's love. Pursuing the men who have driven his wife mad, Nat heads south for a final, deadly showdown against those who would strip him of his home, his love, his freedom, and his life.

Meet Nat Love. Born a slave in Texas, he escapes a lynching and finds a mentor who trains him in shooting, riding, reading, writing and gardening. But the enemies of his youth pursue him, and soon he is on the run again. In the course of a tumultuous life, he becomes in a Buffalo Soldier, a bouncer, a rat catcher, a sharpshooter, a dime-novel star, a friend to Wild Bill Hickok and a US Marshall. From Texas to Deadwood and back down south, he both dodges and courts violence.

I enjoyed this book. Great characters. I wasn’t expecting so much humor.
Nat Love wrote a book about his life named The Life and Adventures of Nat Love. It can be downloaded for free from Gutenberg.org.
