Longtime N.M. rancher and territorial peace officer (1893-1911) Dee (Daniel R.) Harkey claims he has "been shot at more times than any man in the world not engaged in war". Originally published in 1948 when Harkey was 83, the witty autobiography describes life in west Texas and the Carlsbad, N.M., area, included are outlaws like Jim Miller (Pat Garrett's "real" killer) and the Dalton gang. Foreword by Roswell's Judge Charles R. Brice; line drawings by Gene Roberts.

"To readers interested in Texas and New Mexico outlaw history, Harkey's book is a must, but his writing is fastpaced, an entertaining volume that should appeal to all readers. Harkey's was and remains a classic. It is good to have it back in print. The publishers should be commended for placing it once more within the reader's reach". -- True West
