    Frank Eaton aka Pistol Pete - this is his story as told by him to another person to write down. He was called Pistol Pete starting in his teens. He is quite a colorful character. The book does not talk about it, but when he was old, he was around Oklahoma State some, and the kids got to liking him. That is why the OSU mascot is named Pistol Pete. This book will interest OSU fans and Old West fans. Oklahoma and Indian Territories were very rough during his life.

    Fun read about the man behind the Oklahoma State University (and Wyoming and New Mexico State) mascot. Insightful about life in Indian Territory in the 1880's also.

My Grandpa saw Mr. Eaton in a parade when he was a kid. Word about town was that at the nursing home Mr. Eaton never would give up his guns and he wore them till the day he died.

    This book is a wonderful glimpse into the old, classic, western world. It's like stepping into an epic western movie, except it's not fictional. Eaton's writing style is simple and straightforward, but very engaging and fast-paced. Sometimes it was difficult for me to keep up with names, events, and locations simply because he would jump from one place to the next with little explanation. His autobiography hits close to home for me because much of it happens in what is now my home turf.

    Legendary frontier lawman Frank Eaton, who lived in Perkins, OK, tells tall tales about his always interesting (and long) life. Funny, sad, insightful.
