The family matriarch, Martha Marlow, was often left with the children in desolate and lawless country while her restless husband went off in search of adventure. With a brood that eventually grew to fourteen, the nomadic Marlows traveled from Missouri to Texas, to the Chisholm Trail in Indian Territory, and to California and Mexico.

Through fires, blizzards, deaths and accusations of rustling and even murder, Martha held the family together until her own death in Colorado at the age of eighty-four. Theirs is the story of an extraordinary family who lived through extraordinary times.“The five Marlow boys. Were they a gang as notorious as the James brothers, or good people in the wrong place at the right time, accused of horse thievin’ and even cold blooded murder?

The Marlow family was as tight as a fist with the grit and strength to maybe bend the law to fit their own needs. Was mother Martha defending the honor of her law-abiding sons . . . or covering up their sins? Joyce Hartman digs for the true facts of the infamous family and their exploits, then lets readers solve the mystery for themselves. A fascinating read for those who love true stories of the Old West at its best.” Faye Roberts, Author, Fragile Treaties“There are stories about the early West that deserve to be retold.

Joyce Hartman’s book, The Marlows of Wild Horse Creek, certainly falls into that category. The Marlow clan had its day in a court of law more than a century ago as well as a fair amount of print, but none of this has provided enough depth to really understand this controversial family. Hartman comes as close as the passage of time and research allow.”Ken Reyher, Director of Fort Uncompahgre Living History Museum, Delta, Colorado
