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."
