An excerpt from my new biography on the life of Ann Bassett is on the cover of this month's Tombstone Epitaph. Thanks to my editor, Mark Boardman, who also reviewed the book for next month's issue and to Dan Buck and Anne Meadows who wrote the forward to the biography.

      I just got your book and was thumbing through it...on page 105 there is a picture of a cowboy horseback captioned as Tom Horn...is this picture truely Tom Horn?

        would be nice to see this photo. I googled Tom Horn images and saw at least two which I think are not Tom Horn at all. One was used on a cover of a book and shows alleged Tom as a young man.

          This couple supposedly have another photo of Cruzan on a hose. Looks nothing like Cruzan .
          • Are these both Tom Horn? Really?Juha, Thu May 10 11:19pm

                For a number of reasons I can't .
      • According to DanChrisV, Wed May 9 12:13pm
        Look for differences in the two photos. If you find they dont look alike, it must be the same person LOL
      • Just my opinionPat, Wed May 9 9:31am
        I do not think the pic is of Tom Horn under any alias. Perhaps an expert could look at it. One reason is that Horn was undercover at the time and would never have let anyone take is photo.

          Everyone is entitled to their opinion. However, according to the staff at the Museum of Northwest Colorado and Uintah County Museum, experts have looked at the photo. And Wallihan was an expert... more

            It needs to be authenticated by someone other than the local Co museums. They also took a photo of Cruzan too. We only have the word of the museums. Was the name written on back of photo? After all... more

        According to A.G. Wallihan, a well-known photographer in northwest Colorado, it is Tom Horn. Wallihan and his wife both knew the man as his alia, Jim Hicks.
