Review:

Elfego Baca (1865-1945), long considered one of New Mexico's most colorful and controversial figures, first achieved fame in 1884 as a 19 year old deputy sheriff who single-handedly fought off an estimated 80 bloodthirsty cowboys who fired a reported four thousands shots at him without effect during a two-day siege. That reputation stayed with him for the rest of his long and eventful life. Often using his gunfighter reputation to enforce his will, Baca embarked on a long and varied career as a lawyer, private detective, sheriff, county clerk, school superintendent, mayor and district attorney. His unorthodox methods in most instances gave him the added reputation as both a good man and a bad man. Baca counted Billy the Kid and Pancho Villa among his many friends and acquaintances, although the latter reportedly offered $30,000 for his head. Three times he was tried for murder, but was acquitted each time. He was also charged and acquitted of conspiracy against the United States Government. Incredible Elfego Baca: Good Man, Bad Man Of The Old West is the stuff of which western legends are made! -- Midwest Book Review
