Heck yeah. And this is very apropos for me as I just got done reading the biography on Frank Hamer.
Looks good, even if it appears there's some Hollywood embelishments

That's the one I just got done reading. Great book, IMHO. Had a full life and probably the last of the old time lawmen.
Funny too, because his wife (or daughter, I can't recall), hated the way they portrayed him in the Warren Beatty Bonnie & Clyde movie.
He had a son who was a Marine and died at Iwo Jima. And he was also on the other side of a political fight against a young LBJ, who basically stole an election in TX early in his political career
