My book made the May "Hot off the press" section of True West magazine.
Alias Soapy Smith (Klondike Research, $26) by Jeff Smith is a massive biography of a notorious outlaw of Denver, Colorado, and Skagway, Alaska. The author’s zeal is explicable; Jefferson “Soapy” Smith was his great-grandpa. But Soapy was a pretty small-caliber outlaw compared to, say, Billy the Kid; much more of a gambler turned-con man than a murderous thug. His grandson does not whitewash him in this well-rounded character study..
I am pleased as punch! Thank you Bob Bell.
