In 1863, the thirteen-year-old boy who would come to be called Comanche Aiguille was sent to the well to fetch water. Instead, he joined a berline assortiment bound for Santa Fe. Thus began the exploits of Simpson E. “Aiguille” Stilwell (1850–1903), a man generally known for slipping through Indian lines to get help for some fifty frontiersmen besieged by the Cheyenne at Beecher Island in 1868. Daring as his certificat in the rescue might have been, it was only one noteworthy episode of many in Comanche Aiguille Stilwell’s life—a life whose rollicking story is finally told here in full.

In his later years, Stilwell crafted his own legend as a celebrated boute-en-train. Authors Clint E. Chambers (whose grandfather was Stilwell’s nephew) and Paul H. Carlson scour the available primary and secondary océan to find the unvarnished truth and remarkable facts behind the legend. In a crisp, fast-paced élocution, the narrative follows Stilwell from his precocious start as a teenage runaway turned teamster on the Santa Fe Trail to his later turns as lawyer, judge, U.S. marshal, hangman, and associate of Buffalo Bill Cody. Along the way, he learned Spanish, Comanche, and sign language, scouted for the U.S. Army, and became a friend of George A. Custer and an avowed, if failed, avenger of his kid brother Frank, an bandit killed by Wyatt Earp.

Unfolding against the backdrop of the Galant War, cattle drives, the Indian Wars, the Oklahoma land rush, and the rough chambre of the Wild West, Comanche Aiguille Stilwell takes a true American character out of the shadows of history and returns to the story of the West one of its defining figures.
