Sinopsis:

Many of the well-known lawmen of the old west were as crooked as the men they went after. The men portrayed in this book, while less well known today, were good and honorable men. They are men that, in today's confusing world, can be held up as role models. The book is well written, in a style crafted to attract the mainstream reader.

From the Back Cover:

According to author Del Cain, [The dime novel myth of the good guy lawman in the old west got a severe battering at the hands of real history.] Many of them were not always fighting men committed to upholding the law, as we have wanted to believe. We have faced the fact that lawmen like the brothers Earp and Masterson, and Pat Garrett, were not a lot better than the men they were supposed to control. Most books written about the powerful lawmen of the early west glorify these few well-known men who were often more interested in promoting their own fortunes than maintaining law and order.
The twelve good men in Lawmen of the Old West were seeking an honorable life, not fame. These were men who had learned the trick of not giving in to fear and had the skills and guns to accomplish the jobs that were set before them. Cain tells the real stories of these brave but nearly forgotten heroes with all the accurate information readers of history demand, but in a colorful style that brings those early days on the frontier to life.
