HombreHistory.com provides online access to the interesting history of "Hombres."

To many, the term Hombre means old west outlaw. However, a more correct description of an Hombre is "bad man," as in "a bad man to have trouble with." This description applies to both outlaws and lawmen, including desperate outlaws who would do anything to avoid capture and prison; and, the tough lawmen who pursued them no matter what.

Hombre also applies to the participants in the conflict between the Plains Indians and the white intrusion upon their traditional home lands. The tough warriors of the Plains Indian tribes were indeed "bad men to have trouble with." The soldiers, scouts, interpreters, and other frontiersmen at odds with the Plains Indians also possessed a tough determination.

For over twenty years, I have researched the historic people and events of Oklahoma and the great plains. I have had written work published in the Oklahombres Journal and the Chronicles of Oklahoma. My book, Alive If Possible - Dead If Necessary, was published in 2005. I was the author of the Outlaw and Lawman Map of Oklahoma, published in 1989.
