Annotation The story of the five Marlow brothers and their tribulations in late nineteenth century Texas was first related in 1892 by William Rathmell in Life of the Marlows. In this edition, the original text is supplemented by the introduction and annotations of editor Robert K. DeArment. After killing a sheriff and escaping, Boone Marlow is murdered by bounty hunters and his four brothers arrested and jailed. Angry citizens ambush the Marlows during a transfer to another town, killing two brothers and leaving two severely wounded. The surviving Marlow brothers are eventually exonerated, while members of the attack mob are prosecuted in cases that reach the U.S. Supreme Court. Some strong language. 2004.
