Kansas History who are also Border War enthusiasts will no doubt welcome the publication of Captain Tough: Chief of Scouts by attorney Charles F. Harris. Harris compares Captain William Tough, whose professions ranged from Pony Express rider to a strikebreaker to a state legislator, to Buffalo Bill Cody and Wild Bill Hickock and argues that although Tough is not as well-known, he "led an equally unique and thrilling life." In this brief, easy-to-read volume, Harris traces Tough from his early life in Maryland to his later business ventures in Kansas City. Those interested in Civil War history will be drawn to the account of Tough's experience as a Union Army scout and the infamous Kansas-Missouri border war, which is examined through Tough's role as a member of the Kansas Red Legs, a militia-like group with loose Union affiliation that terrorized Missouri border towns.
