When Six-guns Ruled
Outlaw Tales of the SouthwestBook - 1990
Twenty-seven intriguing vignettes, set throughout N.M., about some two dozen outlaws and lawmen, from the 1860s through "The Last Train Robbery" (by young NYC "drugstore cowboys") near Las Cruces in 1938. Well-known Southwest historian Simmons draws on historical, archival, and frontier newspaper sources to sketch the exploits of the notorious (Clay Allison, Vicente Silva, Black Jack Ketchum, Billy the Kid) and not-so-notorious (Joe Fowler, Capt. "Paddy" Graydon, Madam Varnish of White Oaks, the Hall gang of Silver City, James Addison Reavis, "Baron of Arizona"). Includes an introduction; list of selected readings.
