Lawmen Of The Wild West
- American History, General Interest
Meet the men behind the badge
Without a doubt, it was an incredibly tough job. Faced with ruthless gunslingers and assorted desperados, the lawmen of the Old West tried, and sometimes died, in their efforts to bring some semblance of order to their towns and communities.
The requirements needed to be a peace officer in the Wild West were often determined only by the individual’s skill with a gun, and their courage. At times, judgment was needed with only seconds to determine it, which also meant that there was the odd occasion where justice and law never quite meant the same thing.
This fascinating book profiles beloved and infamous lawmen of the Old West and cuts to the truth behind their legends. Includes 100 black-and-white illustrations.
