AWARD WINNING TITLE! "...an absorbing tale, meticulously researched." -from the foreword by Robert K. De Arment. "A KILLER IS WHAT THEY NEEDED": THE TRUE, UNTOLD STORY OF COMMODORE PERRY OWENS, A SHERIFF OF THE ARIZONA TERRITORY. Octavo, 308 pp., illus., color endpaper maps, color pictorial dustjacket. During the 1880s Arizona Territory was among the Wild West's wildest places. It took a special breed of lawman to step up and confront the likes of the Clanton and Blevins brothers, and their gang members. Often faced with but an instant to think through a situation, their continued existence depended on being willing to pull the trigger now and ask questions later. Such a man was Apache County Sheriff Commodore Perry Owens. Quiet, enigmatic, small in stature and quirky in personality-yet undeniably brave-Owens tamed northeastern Arizona Territory with his sheer grit and wits. This is Owens' full story-the first time ever in print!

The book also contains plenty of photographs, many I've never seen, which is a true testament to the amount of research that was done on the man. If you are an Old West aficionado or an Arizona history buff, this book is one for your library.
