Give a Boy a Gun is an epistolary novel for young adults by Todd Strasser, first published in 2000. The novel describes the events and social circumstances that lead up to, and form the aftermath of, a fictional school shooting.

In this book, the story of Claude Lafayette Dallas, J. Olsen takes on perhaps his most challenging assignment - explicating the curious relationship between a homicidal young "mountain man" and those who saw in his colorful ways the embodiment of the cowboy mystique of the West. On a snow-blown day, Dallas killed two game wardens who entered his trapping and poaching camp in ldaho's Owyhee Desert.

Give a Boy a Gun (1985). From the book flap cover, Olsen, writes, "Cassius Clay is far more important as an American phenomenon of the 1960s than as a prizefighter. Doc: The Rape of the Town of Lovell (1989). In his career as a boxer, he followed a traditional, even a stereotyped road to the top for a Negro, but his distortion of the American rags-to-riches story is peculiarly his ow. Olsen spent a considerable amount of time around the boxer, subjecting him to several interviews over a two-year time period. Olsen also interviews family members, past training staff, doctors, promoters, and over twenty different sources who worked with Ali.

I give the story 4 stars but the digitized copy is terrible. I wish Amazon or Kindle would have proofed this copy better; be prepared for poor translation from the print copy. It often took me a few seconds to figure out what the word printed should have been and I can't come close to remembering how many times random numbers (page numbers from the original) appeared in the text. Exclamation points instead of "I", "cl" changes to "d" etc. Very distracting to try and read through SO MANY errors. The worst example I've seen after reading about 100 Kindle books. Made me wish I had the print copy.

C'mon Amazon - you can do better.

This was a surprisingly thought-provoking book, which I did not expect from a "true crime" kind of story. Author does an amazing job of creating balance between the "criminal" and the authorities. It is well written and kept my attention from the start, clear through to the end. While it really does just present the information, it is written in such a way as to make one think about the morality of both the laws we have, and of the actions of the "criminal" without preaching toward one direction. Well worth a read for any outdoors person.

This was a highly readable book about the story of Claude Dallas, the culture of guns, hunting, and trapping in the rural American west, and the failings of our criminal justice system.

The author is a compelling storyteller, so the actual storyline about Claude Dallas's life, the murders, and the trial is easy to read and engaging. Additionally, the author interviewed so many people and painted such a vivid picture of the actors involved in the case that I felt as if I had a real glimpse of the culture in northern Nevada and southern Idaho.

This book was written awhile ago, but it is nonetheless relevant today, given the current situation with Cliven Bundy and his free-roaming cattle in Nevada. Claude Dallas held similar views about the government's role in land management, hunting, and trapping, and styled himself a live-off-the-land mountain man (who clung to this self-image despite the fact that he needed people to bring him provisions, including pudding, while he "wintered" "alone" in the wilderness). The most fascinating part of the book is the description of the juror deliberations and the "Dallas cheerleaders" who showed up in court to support a guy who gave less than compelling evidence of self defense. So many people rallied around Dallas, jurors included, because they believed that a guy with such a charming and folksy disposition had to be justified. I'd be curious to see if these same people, who liberally used racist language, would feel similarly if a non-white person had committed the same act. The book definitely exposes some of the enormous problems with juror bias.

One final note. I am giving the book four stars because the content is great, but I'd give it zero stars if I were judging it based on the Kindle formatting. I've read other older books that have clearly been converted into e-reader format, but this one is far and away the worst conversion I've ever seen. The formatting errors and typos make the book almost unreadable at some points, and one read-through by a semi-literate editor would've caught 99% of the errors.

Sometimes, when I am really lucky, I discover an author whose work I've never read. I discovered Jack Olsen a few months back and have read two of his books, and both drew me in and keep me reading with more enthusiasm than I've had with any other books for quite some time. Give a Boy a Gun was truly engrossing and left me wanting to read more work from this author. I intend to do just that...

I live in Idaho and lived through this time with the murders of our Fish and Game officers. Have read a couple of other books about Claude Dallas, and think this gives his story, as his friends saw him. Certainly not the way the rest of the western part of the United States saw him.

Having lived in metropolitan areas all my life, this book enlightened my on the west and how law and order were maintained in the 1980's. The story was fascinating and Jack Olsen did an excellent job of telling it. I don't think I can add anything that hasn't been said by other reviewers. My only issue was that the Kindle version had a lot of typos. Three digit numbers appeared in the middle of a lot of sentences. It was distracting and the Kindle version could use a good edit.

But reading about this stuff leaves me sad for the victims and those who commit these crimes. Having served on jury myself, these stories leave me uneasy about a jury trial. They are a mess.
Enjoyed the book. Great story and well written. Was very disappointed in the quality with regard to the plethora of typo’s... especially from an accomplished author. Not to mention the price charged for an ebook. Does anyone read the product before release? This is so commonplace sadly. Not to mention how annoying it is to the reader.
