Product Description

Product Description

Lawmen of the old west played a juggling act as far as the law was concerned. The lawman had be both tougher and smarter than his outlaw counterpart or the outlaw would win. Most the sheriffs and marshals wearing abdages played at gambling, often owning the gambling concessions in the saloons and barooms of the very towns they were required to police. As it was gambling that caused much of the trouble in any western town, the lawmen found themselves supporting gambling while trying to curb the unlawful activities of angry gamblers. The lawman was invariably good with a gun, and was often forced to bring it into play. Western Author Alton Pryor brings about thirty of the West's most notorious together in his book, The Lawmen.

5.0 out of 5 stars An engaging focus on law enforcers that plied their trade on the western American frontier 11 April 2006
By Midwest Book Review - Published on
The Lawmen by western author Alton Pryor is an engaging focus on law enforcers that plied their trade on the western American frontier. Introducing an intriguing cast of known lawmen and outlaws, The Lawmen depicts a gripping story of their daily lives in the west with special attention to the mentality and practices of those who upheld the law (as well as their indecencies and character flaws nowadays so sparsely known or acknowledged). The Lawmen is an interesting and evermore enthralling tale, very highly recommended and to be given high praise as the ideal addition to the libraries of Western fiction novels, as well as to those who have studied the west, as there are a great many of historical figures tactfully intertwined throughout the story.
