- Over the hills and far away.
Ah that's the truth, there's nothing glorious or heroic about it. I was reading about a chap called Ben Thompson, he was an Englishman that upset a few people, Bill Hickok being one of them, when he met his end in a shootout he had only managed to fire two shots yet his body had 13 holes in it, they were extremely violent times.Indeed! That's a degree of perseverance I do not possess... There are some real descendants of Jesse's living hereabouts and they say it was definitely Mr Howard who got shot by the coward! Almost none of these outlaws died in a real high noon shoot-out, always in the back...that was the only way you'd take out somebody as deadly as these pistoleers! Or, in Billy's case, in the dark...
