Traveling the Old West calls for the adventure in us, as many of the trails and sites are not on established roads, nor well marked or marked at all.

Journalist Ron Franscell has finally given us a weapon to help us win this battle—GPS coordinates to the graves and sites of Texas outlaws and the lawmen who chased and convicted them. He even includes some of the historic sites, like Judge Roy Bean’s Jersey Lilly Saloon. For those of you who want to ensure you reach the prize at the end of your search, Franscell’s guidebook is an indispensable resource.
