Famous Sheriffs & Western Outlaws





From the end of the Civil War until the beginning of the twentieth century, throughout the vast expanse of the western states, certain male residents (for this was exclusively a male occupation) routinely engaged in an activity seldom seen in such proportions or with such frequency before or after this period: the deadly interaction between armed outlaws and officers of the law.  This is the focus of William MacLeod Raine's classic work Famous Sheriffs & Western Outlaws.
