Part Eleventh: Conclusion. Mercer and Clay

Martin compares the truthfulness of Asa Mercer's book Banditti of the Plains (1894) with John Clay's book My Life on the Range (1924) regarding the Johnson County War and asserts that Mercer is truthful and Clay is not. The lack of truth in Clay's account, according to Martin, is because it shades the events to favor the large cattle owners.
