Frank’s thirst for a reckoning takes him across the lawless Indian Territory, to Southwest City, Missouri, to the wide-open mesa lands of eastern New Mexico “My boy, may an old man’s curse rest upon you, if you do not try to avenge your father!” Answering those words, young Frank Eaton determines to settle with each of the six men who had riddled his father full of lead. Frank’s thirst for a reckoning takes him across the lawless Indian Territory, to Southwest City, Missouri, to the wide-open mesa lands of eastern New Mexico and, finally, to Albuquerque.

In David Althouse’s stories, the reader sees the sights, hears the sounds and smells the gunpowder!” -- Justin Brotton, Editor, Distinctly Oklahoma Magazine To follow author David Althouse, visit www.davidalthouse.com

    I have read a lot of books on the wild west, the cowboys, the marshals, the rangers, the outlaws and the general gun-slinging. That was a long, long time ago - maybe 30 years ago! When I found, quite by accident, The Guns of Frank Eaton by David Althouse as a Historical Fiction I was intrigued. For I have never read a book on the wild west written as a Historical Fiction. I picked this up, and read the first 30 pages somewhat gingerly. And then, I was hooked.

That was a long, long time ago - maybe 30 years ago! When I found, quite by accident, The Guns of Frank Eaton by David Althouse as a Historical Fiction I was intrigued. For I have never read a book on the wild west written as a Historical Fiction. I picked this up, and read the first 30 pages somewhat gingerly. And then, I was hooked. The story was told in simple language and terms, as would a cowboy (with no literary pretenses). The story, as it unfolded, was as good as any in terms of literary value. My normal reading speed is quite fast, and I would would have taken one-third the time for an equivalent book by, say, Louis L'Amour. But I took my time to read this book slowly, to savor the simple, yet compelling descriptions of the lives and times. And I did not even have a clue as to why this was a historical fiction! At that time, I did not know that Frank "Pistol Pete" Eaton was not just a simple historical figure, but a cult-figure of sorts! The story is simple and straight forward. Frank Eaton, as a small boy, witnesses his father murdered by six members of a gang called the Regulators. The story that follows is that of how Frank grows up with just one objective - how to avenge his father's death by killing off all the six murderers. To appreciate how this extremely simple, often told tale, is special as in this book, I strongly recommend that you read it. After I finished reading the book, I looked up Frank "Pistol Pete" Eaton on the Internet. There have been other books, I understand, that have been written about Frank Eaton (I haven't read any other). I may pick them up some day. But I am convinced that this is likely to hold its own in terms of narrative, style, and reader engagement.

    Wow! Frank Eaton’s story needs to be made into a movie! Growing up a lifelong OSU Cowboy fan I’d heard that Pistol Pete was modeled after a real person, Frank Eaton. Well this is the story of the Man, the Myth, and the Legend that proudly patrols the sidelines of every Cowboy and Cowgirl game and represents OSU Worldwide. His story starts off as a young child who witnesses his father’s brutal murder and then chronicles his journey to avenge it. Great read about a true Legend of the West. I am pro Wow!

    A book about a true Wild West Cowboy. This book is about a true Wild West Cowboy. I highly recommend the reading of this book if you enjoy Westerns, especially books about true historical figures.

    Good read! I read for pleasure and relaxation, not to write reviews. I feel the star rating system should be sufficient for most readers and that reviews should be left to recognized critics.
