Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0944383637, Paperback)At 27 William Davis "Dave" Allison became the youngest sheriff in the State of Texas, elected at Midland County in 1888. He was still wearing a badge when gunned down by infamous cattle rustlers Hill Loftis (aka Tom Ross) and Milton Paul Good in 1923. Between times he was 6 times an elected sheriff; a member of the Texas Rangers and Arizona Rangers; Chief of Police at Roswell, New Mexico; personal bodyguard of Colonel William Cornell Green during the vicious 1906 mine strikes at Cananea, Mexico; livestock inspector; and he led the posse that caught and killed Mexican revolutionary Pascual Orozco in 1915. Devoid of bravado, yet fearless, and deadly when provoked, Dave Allison was described by a young cavalryman named George S. Patton as, "The most noted gunman here in Texas."
