"Sheriff Harvey Whitehill" by Bob Alexander
Bob Alexander shows that not only was Harvey Whitehill a major figure in the annals of the of the Old West, he shows as well that the Sheriff’s home ground of Silver City, New Mexico, rivals Tombstone, Dodge City and Deadwood as a hotbed of outlaw-lawman history.
A great biography of this 19th century Grant County, NM, sheriff. Whitehill jailed Billy the Kid, knew the infamous rustler John Kinney, lived through the Apache Wars and beat Pat Garrett at the polls.
