Cowboys and Gangsters / Stories of an Untamed Southwest - Samuel K. Dolan

Stories of an Untamed Southwest


Even after WWI had ended, the region of Arizona, New Mexico and West Texas, stubbornly refused to be tamed. It was still a place where frontier gunfights still broke out at an alarming rate. Through the lens of a handful of Texas Rangers and Federal Agents, the book covers a unique and action-packed era in American history. It s a story that connects the horse and saddle days of the Old West, with the high-octane decade of the Roaring Twenties. Utilizing official records, newspaper accounts, and oral histories, Cowboys and Gangsters tells the story of the untamed Wild West of the Prohibition-era of the 1920s and early 1930s and introduces a rogues gallery of sixgun-packing western gunfighters and lawmen."
