Fiction: anything by Zane Grey and Louis Lamour.

Realworld: From Andrew Jackson, at New Orlean's ,when that was the west, to the men in uniform and the native Americans, they contended with. Their all hero's for me.

Perhaps the greatest of all the wild west Sheriffs

Perhaps the greatest of all the wild west sheriffs was Bill Tilghman.

Only, this thread has been dormant long enough!

I've been pondering this* and I'd like to add Sacajawea to the discussion. Her assistance to Lewis and Clark was important in getting the rest of the Indians to either help or at least ignore L&C as they moved their way west.

Another addition is Brig Gen Stand Watie, the last standing Confederate General in 1865, and a full blooded Cherokee.

*Not well and not long, but I have been pondering!

My favorite in the wild west is Tilghman,everybody has said what there is to say about him. My absolute favorite man of the westis; General George Rogers Clark,William Clark's older brother,his campaigns in the old west,Ohio,Kentuckey area,during the Revolution helped pave the way toward westward expansion.

"Hombre" was the perfect ultimate example of an anti hero. Perfectly motivated, and I loved it when Richard Boone came up with a white flag and Paul Newman asked him how he was going to get back down that hill.

I gotta agree with Jim Bowie.Between that damn knife and the Alamo he's one of the most well known and memorable characters from the West.
