Legends Of America and Roundabout Publications Partner On Book “Old West Lawmen”
Warsaw, Missouri - May 3, 2012 - Kathy Weiser-Alexander and Legends Of America have partnered with Roundabout Publications of LaCygne Kansas for her third book, “Old West Lawmen”.
The Old West was often a lawless place, where outlaws frequently reigned supreme. Many of the wild and rowdy places were initially populated by men and often attracted seedier elements of society to their many saloons, dance halls, gambling parlors and brothels. However, as thousands of pioneers pushed their way westward in search of land and better lives, they demanded law and order.
Marshals and sheriffs were in high demand in some of the most lawless settlements as well as the numerous mining camps that dotted the West. Though the vast majority of these lawmen were honorable and heroic figures, ironically, many of them rode both sides of the fence and were known as outlaws as well.
Old West Lawmen is a collection of stories featuring 57 lawmen. Included are more than 70 vintage photographs plus articles about various organizations like the Texas Rangers, U.S. Marshals, and the Pinkerton Detective Agency.
It’s the first book of Weiser’s published under the Legends Of America name, and follows up her 2006 book “Great American Bars and Saloons”, published by Chartwell Books, and her co-authored look at America’s Mother Road “Greetings From Route 66” published in 2010 by Voyageur Press.
Print and PDF versions of Old West Lawmen are available at Legend’s Of America’s Rocky Mountain General Store and as a Kindle eBook through Amazon.
