Book Overview

Was Sheriff William Brady a willing pawn in the hands of a crooked political faction or was he an honest man dedicated to law and order? After his extensive research, Donald R. Lavash thinks Brady deserves a more realistic evaluation of his part in the Lincoln County Was in New Mexico. In 1873, crime and violence were rampant in Lincoln County, New Mexico. Land fraud, cattle and horse stealing were common. Outlaws, including Billy the Kid, swarmed in to join hands with dishonest citizens. Although Brady tried to stem the growing tide of anarchy, his efforts ended when he was ambushed by Billy the Kid and his gang. This book is not only a biography of a man but the history of an era in the American Southwest. More information on this controversial period will be found in these other Sunstone Press books: Alias Billy the Kid by Donald Cline, Sheriff Pat Garrett's Last Days by Colin Rickards, The Death of Billy the Kid by John William Poe, The Real Billy the Kid by Miguel Antonio Otero, Stalking Billy the Kid by Marc Simmons, The Authentic Life of Billy the Kid by Pat Garrett, Kit Carson's Own Story of His Life by Blanche Grant, and Dynamite and Six-Shooter by Jeff Burton. Donald R. Lavash was a historian on the staff of the New Mexico State Records Center and Archives and was a specialist in American Southwest history. An author of numerous articles and the book, A Journey Through New Mexico History also published by Sunstone Press, he received his Ph.D. from the International Institute for Advanced Studies.
