Serving inMorePat Garrett, Wyatt Earp, and Elfego Baca earned their fame as Southwestern lawmen and have had numerous books written about them. None, however, comes close to Deputy Dan Tucker in meeting the violent life of the frontier head-on. Serving in southwest New Mexico in the 1870s and 80s, Tucker killed, at the least, eight outlaws, wounded several others, and was shot several times himself. Virtually lost to history until now, Bob Alexander has brought Dangerous Dan Tucker back to life, with rigorous historical research that includes newspaper accounts, first person accounts, and court records.
