Award-winning Western author Johnny D. Boggs, a six-time Spur Award-winner and six-time finalist who also has won the Western Heritage Wrangler Award for his fiction, introduces this collection.
Outlaws and Lawmen brings Western literature fans stories about cattle rustlers, bank robbers, card sharks, brutes, thieves and those who would kill just as soon as look at you. Many a frontier boom town grew faster than the law could handle. But there were men who would try, the men who pinned on a badge and fought to bring justice.
“One of the classic themes of the Old West is the clash between outlaws and lawmen, the struggle to bring law and order to the frontier,” said Mike Harris, La Frontera Publishing’s publisher. “We felt it would be the perfect theme to launch our new anthology series.”
The new anthology series is entitled “La Frontera Publishing Presents the American West.”
“Our hope is that our new series will serve as a stepping stone for some of today’s storytellers who may become tomorrow’s Western literature giants,” Harris said.
Outlaws and Lawmen (200 pages, trade paperback) is distributed through the University of New Mexico Press (http://www.unmpress.com).
