Deadwood Saints and Sinners

by Jerry L. Bryant
and Barbara Fifer

published by Farcountry Press

  • Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane get all the press, but Deadwood was as rich in remarkable and eccentric personalities as it was in ore. Authors Bryant and Fifer have mined the archives for obscure (and true!) tales of murderous women, artful con men, woebegone children, an African American orator, a determined temperance activist, and a lovesick assayer. Discover Deadwood as it really was!

Jerry L. Bryant align= The late Jerry L. Bryant, a member of Registered Professional Archaeologists, was a historian with a passion for solving the riddles of Deadwood's past and preserving the Black Hills' historic sites and stories. As one of the foremost authorities in the life of Al Swearingen (collateral descendants prefer this spelling), Bryant was honored by the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences for his work on the HBO series Deadwood. Bryant held a bachelor's degree in anthropology and a master's in cultural resources management, working in that capacity for the U.S. Bureau of Land Management, the U.S. Forest Service, and the Adams Museum in Deadwood. He was also a decorated Navy veteran.
Barbara Fifer align= Barbara Fifer majored in creative writing and comparative literature at Ohio University while working summers at a daily newspaper. She coedited the Montana Historical Society's journal, Montana: The Magazine of Western History and has edited and written innumerable magazine articles and books, including the following Farcountry titles: Wanted! Wanted Posters of the Old West; Montana Mining Ghost Towns; Montana Battlefields, 1806-1877; Going Along the Emigrant Trails; Going Along with Lewis & Clark; and the Lewis & Clark Expedition Illustrated Glossary. Fifer continued to write and edit from her home in Helena, Montana until her passing.
