Being a Wild West afficianado and owning quite a few books of that genre, I was surprised at the exceptionally gripping narrative presented here. Secrest treats you to in-depth profiles of the early Californians, both good and bad, in such a way you can visualize what life was like in the 1800's. It is hard to put this book down. These six remarkably brave, intrepid lawmen seemed to think nothing of taking on one or more desperate men in dark and lonely places, sometimes paying with their life. Whether or not the reader is a fan of Old West history, Secrest delivers a most intriguing and satisfying glimpse into a long forgotten way of life, with delightful insight resulting from excellent research.
