LINE RIDER: An Arizona Ranger's True Story of Indians, Outlaws, Gamblers, and Stampedes
During his lifetime, the “wild west” from the storybooks still lived and breathed in one of the last places to be modernized—Arizona.
Joe, as he calls himself, took various roles throughout his adventurous life, including sheep herder, cowman, courter, tracker, line rider, and, most famously, that venerated breed of law man know as the Arizona Ranger. His story leads him to encounters with cattle rustlers, gamblers, saloons, stampedes, horse thieves, Indian trackers, outlaws, and nearly every other subject that later made its way into western legend.
But this story is absolutely real, told in his own voice in vivid detail.
