Why did a Man want to be sheriff? The pay was low, and the work ranged from menial to dangerous and demanding.

The majority of the men who enforced the law were average citizens. Some served in a time of high adventure; some were not as brave as others; some drank too much; some were pawns of politics, and others were escaping shadowy pasts. As Gorzalka chronicles the life of each sheriff in Wyoming's territorial days, their successes, failures, and motivation, the stories combine to create the era's history.

Chapters on all fifty-five territorial sheriffs. Photos of most.
