"That Wicked Little Gringo" by Ben Traywick
Although Wyatt Earp has the notoriety as a Tombstone lawman, it was actually a man aptly named Slaughter, after Wyatt left, who tamed Cochise County and Tombstone. Ben Traywick takes John Slaughter through his life as lawman and cattleman.
Tombstone's John Slaughter - a man of iron, a loner, silent, dangerous and deadly.
Ben T. Traywick earned 10 battle stars during his tour of duty in the Navy during World War II. He retired as a chemist, having worked in the explosives industry, and moved to Tombstone, Arizona. In 1957, Ben sold his first historical article and has never looked away from his lifelong interest. His first publication in the Tombstone Epitaph came in 1963, paving the road of a writing career that investigates virtually every aspect of that legendary
Wild West town and the persona's of its history. Since then, he has written more than 600 newspaper and magazine articles and has published over 40 pamphlets and books. Ben is the director of the Tombstone Tourism Association and the official town historian.
