Ride the Devil’s Herd: Wyatt Earp’s Epic Battle Against the West’s Biggest Outlaw Gang

Readers interested in Wyatt Earp and “Wild West” history will enjoy this new chronicle of the lawman’s life and times.

Texas Ranger: The Epic Life of Frank Hamer, the Man Who Killed Bonnie and Clyde

This biography is more comprehensive than the sole previous one, H. Gordon Frost and John H. Jenkins's I'm Frank Hamer: The Life of a Texas Peace Officer, and is recommended as a basic text for early 20th-century Texas history. Through the extraordinary experiences of this straight-shooting, honor-bound lawman, Boessenecker sets forth a critically needed look at the history of Texas lynchings and race riots while presenting evidence for the murderous nature of Bonnie and Clyde that foreordained their violent deaths.
