Though it's not really an io9 subject, I recently discovered the Google: Book preview of The Encyclopedia of Lawmen, Outlaws & Gunfighters by Leon Metz. If there were a reasonably-priced hardcopy available, I know a couple of kids that would probably like a copy for next Christmas (one of which lives in my house), but neither of them have a Kindle yet and I don't think they'd read a book on a screen just yet, so I guess they'll have to wait.

In the meantime, I've enjoyed thumbing through the Google preview and if it's a subject in which anyone is interested, I highly recommend it. (Scroll to "Entries: A-Z")
