Reviews

"The author presents a slice of Western society that we seldom see: its social and political mores, its racism, its individualism, its brutality, its strength, and its foolishness . . . a tale of difficult, troublesome years, and Ball tells it well."
"The complete picture of the U.S. Marshal in the West, told from official documents and the daily press."
Will probably become the standard source on the federal marshalcy in the New Mexico and Arizona territories.
Well written, definitive . . . strips away legend and delineates the positive role [marshals] played in maintaining peace in Arizona and New Mexico.
