The Old West bred some mighty tough men!

Unfortunately, the general public knows little or nothing about the good ones!

Billy the Kid, the Daltons, Jesse James, Sam Bass, the Youngsters, Wesley Hardin and many more are familiar as “heroes” to the children and their parents of today. So, even more unfortunately are many so-called “lawmen” who were actually nothing but hired killers, far more crooked than most of the men they eliminated!

Heck Thomas deserves to be known in a way that most of the current TV “Marshals” never deserved. Fighter, yes, and killer at times, law officer of some of the toughest areas in the Southwest (such as the Cherokee Strip and other outlaw-ridden parts of Oklahoma), he never took a bribe, was a model family man, and lived to a magnificent old age, still “in hardness,” honoured as one of the last genuine heroes of the frontier by all who knew him. No one, outlaw or politician, ever made him back down and his record of arrests and captures still stands as one of the most noteworthy of any peace officer anywhere.

To a public which always seeks true heroism and is proud of the iron men who built America, this man, Heck Thomas, must stand forever as the best type of man of the West, low-voiced, courteous, law-abiding, and very, very dangerous.

Heck Thomas made his lifework keeping the law, and emerges from the shadowy past to blazing life as an authentic hero of the Old Frontier.
