4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Gentlemen, reprobate, killer, lawman--Jim McIntire was all of these, and more. In the 1870s McIntire was a regular fixture in the life of such Texas towns as Fort Griffin, Jacksboro, Fort Belknap, and Mobeetie. The handsome young man soon built a quick-gun reputation that in the 1880s led him into city law enforcement in Las Vegas, New Mexico, and later branded him an outlaw. A near-death experience in 1901 prompted a nevertheless unrepentant McIntire to pen his life story. Rich with detail, his narrative chronicles a violent time on the nineteenth-century frontier, revealing attitudes of frontier folk toward bigotry, cruelty to humans and animals, law enforcement, buffalo hunting, saloons, gambling, and more. Notable frontier figures parade through his narrative, including legendary lawmen Pat Garrett, John W. Poe, and Wyatt Earp, and an assortment of outlaws and gunfighters, such as Sam Bass, Billy the Kid, Jim Courtright, and "Mysterious Dave" Mather. Robert K. DeArment's careful editing and extensive annotations correct McIntire's errors of fact, chronology, and omission, placing Early Days in Texas among the important firsthand accounts of life on the rough edge of the Texas and New Mexico frontier -- Back cover
Ballots and bullets : the bloody county seat wars of Kansas by Robert K DeArment( Book )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 187 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bleeding Kansas" has earned its name. A state already scarred from the violence wrought by the likes of John Brown and William Quantrill, Kansas witnessed further episodes of wanton bloodshed in the late nineteenth century when settlers poured into a supposedly peaceful frontier. Focusing on the tumultuous years 1885-1892, Robert K. DeArment's compelling narrative is the first to reveal the complete story of the county seat wars that raged in Kansas-controversial episodes that made national news in the late 1900s but are largely unknown today. With a story populated by some of the most notorious characters of the West-including Sam Wood, Theodosius Botkin, Bat Masterson, and Bill Tilghman-Ballots and Bullets relives the violence that only avarice can breed. Ordinary, decent citizens were drawn into bitter conflicts to advance their own communities and block the fortunes of other towns, even if it meant using hired gunmen. Gripping and historically accurate, DeArment's account reveals a shocking chapter in the history of the West

A rough ride to redemption : the Ben Daniels story by Robert K DeArment( Book )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 98 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"He may be little-known today, but Ben Daniels was at the center of the action in the Old West - whether on the buffalo ranges of Texas, in the roaring cowtown of Dodge City, or in the mining boomtown of Cripple Creek. Truth be told, Benjamin Franklin Daniels was a feared gunman who typified the journeyman gunfighter every bit as much as those whose names have become legend. Yet his story has eluded researchers and yarn-spinners alike - until now." "Two prominent western historians have teamed up to tell the story of Ben Daniels's rise from outlaw and convict to presidential protege and high-ranking officer of the law. Tracing his life from jailhouse to White House, from Dodge City to San Juan Hill, Robert K. DeArment and Jack DeMattos present a full-length biography of Daniels, the most controversial of Teddy Roosevelt's "White House Gunfighters," showing that, while not as celebrated as other great shootists, he was as colorful, and his story is as engrossing as any of theirs." "The book faithfully traces Daniels's early years, the time he spent in the Wyoming Territorial Penitentiary for stealing government mules, his rebirth as a Dodge City lawman - including the controversy over his shooting a man in the back - and his part in the Battle of Cimarron. Following military service with the Rough Riders in the Spanish-American War, Daniels was appointed by President Roosevelt as U.S. marshal for the turbulent Arizona Territory. Daniels was as quick with his mind as with a gun, but he had a rough ride to redemption."--Jacket
