By Tom Power with John Whitlatch. 1969. Paperback.
There are but a handful of true west stories. The Power Family Story is one of those. From their simple beginnings in West Texas to the furious gun battle a snowy winter day in Arizona, to decades of fighting for justice, theirs is a story of pain and courage. Tom and John Power – both blinded in their left eyes during the gun battle – and old, ex-Army Scout, Tom Sission, eluded over 3,000 possemen and soldiers for over a month in some of the most forbidding terrain on this planet. Their story is truly one of the most remarkable feats of courage that ever played out in the American West. You decide whether justice was served. 173 pages.
