The true story of Judge Isaac C. Parker who ruled the Arkansas frontier with a hangman's rope.

"Fort Smith in 1875 was the wildest town in the United States. It had a population of 2500 last souls, thirty saloons doing a booming business and a red light section that never closed.

Into this hell on the border of Ihe Indian Territory came Isaac C. Parker like the conscience of the Lord, and as a Federal Judge he proceeded to make himself the most efficient legal executioner in American history. Within four months he had sentenced six men to be hanged and they were all executed at a public hanging to which 6000 people came. Year after year his dance of death went on. It never ceased. By the time his court was finally dissolved, this fanatical judge had actually hanged eighty eight men.

This is the authentic story of those rough days in Arkansas, bloodthirsty and brutal, yet still an exciting and true picture of what the frontier of the United States was really like in its turbulent and roaring heyday."

Includes index and a 20+ page section in the back of the book giving sources of information.
