Book Description HTML

Contrary to popular belief the ‘Wild West’ was not nearly as violent as depicted in the newspapers of the late 1800s and still is today, in both film and print. It did have its bloody moments, as you’ll read in this tale that mixes reality with fiction.The setting is Front Street in Dodge City - home to the Long Branch Saloon where the beer was cold and the women were hot. Both were freely available to any cowpoke with the price. The year is 1875, when Charlie Bassett was elected the town's first lawman. A decade later, after the newspapers in Boston and New York had made Dodge famous, more colorful lawmen would come to town: They had names like Earp and Masterson - but this is the tale of the first and perhaps best sheriff of Dodge, as narrated by a young drifter named "Chalky".
