Alfred Henry Lewis was a lawyer, politician, wandering cowboy, and Hearst journalist. His writing provides insight into the life of real cowboys. Wolfville is a Southwestern town and the location for several books by Lewis. Some of its colorful inhabitants are Jaybird Bob and Slim Jim, Mace Bowman, Pion Bill, and Tuscon Jennie. Wolfville is a town where no questions are asked. Outlaws, lawmen mule-skinners and runaways all drink in the same saloon. Justice comes in the form of a gun and the hangman's noose.
