About this Item

Octavo. 332p. index. bibliography. notes with a foreword by Rick Miller. Number four in the A.C. GreenThe most bitter feud in Texas history where Sheriff John Clark led a mob leading to the premeditated murder of rancher Timothy Williamson in 1875. It brought the Texas Rangers into secure the peace and deal with the lawlessness which involved murders and corruption by "the law." As Harold Preece noted in his biography of Texas Ranger Ira Alten: "Corpseshad dangled from pecan trees. Men were called to their doors at night and gunned to death before their families. Ranchers and cowboys were butchered on rocky roads, then dumped like the carcasses of wild goats into mountain gulches and creek bottoms." In 1884 the feud threatened to erupt again and now the Texas Rangers entered the picture eventually bringing the peace as Sheriff Clark fled to Missouri and others to the frontier towns to pursue further lawlessness.A fine copy bound in red cloth, spine lettering gilt, in fine pictorial dust jacket.
