Resident Deputy Sheriff
As a long-time Deputy Sheriff in Marin County, Weldon lived through some very interesting times relevant to law enforcement, participating in fighting the most vicious crimes emananting from the hottest issues of the day. His many memorable experiences, in and out of uniform, were always in the interests of keeping the peace. The book's subtitle, ". . . in Wild and Wooly West Marin; a collection of vivid vignettes," says a lot about its contents. The author's tales brim with a variety of countercultural events, and the many ways that humans succumb to evil and occasionally rise in redemption. Many revelations are devilishly humorous but all reflect the image of a conscientious man who has, fortunately for Marin County and California society, invested the major part of his life in keeping the sane balance between extremes of behavior found in the Golden State.

I can't wait to read this book by Weldon Travis! It's about time that someone stepped up and wrote about life as a deputy in Marin County.
As with any law enforcement position, it is stressful and almost always a thankless job. They deal with nothing but negativity on a daily basis. Most law enforcement officers turn to alcohol and sex as a way of coping. Both make you feel good, unfortunately, both of these are also addictions.
I worked with Weldon for over 10 years. He was always positive and good natured, and I enjoyed working with him.
I wonder what the current egotistical and hypocritical administration of the Marin County Sheriff's Department would do, if everyone in their department (current, retired and fired) told their story??
Good for you Weldon! Happy Retirement!
1 star rating only because 0 is not an option. This book caused me to throw up on my mouth several times. The author who was ultimately fired is a self- admitted bisexual, alcoholic, philandering narcissist. He is a public disgrace to all uniformed law enforcement officers. What a delusional bitch whose only accomplishment in life is to pleasure men while his 80 year old wife watches.
Narcissist is an understatement for this guy. Check out his Twitter account announcing he will be scheduling book signings for this piece of garbage. Brilliant idea except he has 0 followers LOL. The signing should be a hoot.
