E.T. Barnette was a true-life con man and promoter. Like Judge Roy Bean, and many other western characters, he roamed the frontier searching for his fortune. Barnette struck it rich in Alaska, and founded the city of Fairbanks. Yet less than 10 years later he was run out of town. Some said he had gone to Mexico, but for many years no one knew what had happened to him. And few remembered the true story of how he came to be the most hated man in his own town. Terrence Cole's biography of E. T. Barnette is a major work of Alaskan and frontier history. This edition contains new photos of Barnette, and for the first time the story of the old con man's death.
