Life of the Marlows
A True Story of Frontier Life of Early Days
Revised by William Rathmell
Edited, with an introduction and annotations
by Robert K. DeArment
"In addition to his able and informative introduction, DeArment's
copious, valuable notes provide a running scholarly critique of
what Rathmell wrote. DeArment is the first Marlow scholar to
use a key source that is not one hundred percent in praise of the
Marlows, thereby providing a counterweight to the open bias of
the Rathmell account." -Richard M. Brown, author of No Duty
