"Dangerous Dan Trucker" by Bob Alexander
Deputy Sheriff, Town Marshall, Deputy U.S. Marshall, Train Agent and Livestock Inspector...Dan Tucker was the quintessential lawman during the violent frontier period of southwest New Mexico.
This book is more than a gunman’s story. Bob Alexander skillfully weaves in Tucker’s nervy confrontations with criminals, the quirky and everyday details of an underpaid lawman living on the edge.
The story of a little known southwest New Mexico deputy sheriff; no Hollywood hero, but extremely competent and supremely dangerous if you had been an outlaw!
Bob Alexander is one of the most renowned historians of the Old West.
