BOWIE KNIFE

This is the tracing of the real story of the famous killer of the West, the bowie knife. The origins of the knife, its legends, its fame; the sifting of the true and the false as related to James Bowie for whom it was named. It adds to and corrects a literature of pioneer sagas, this is authentic frontier stuff that should have some appeal for a wild west devotee audience -- for collectors of knives, etc.
