About this title

From the Inside Flap:

Orrin Porter Rockwell served as U.S. Deputy Marshal, Indian fighter, guerrilla, and bodyguard to Brigham Young. In his earlier Missouri days he suffered months of dungeon-style imprisonment at the hands of anti-Mormon persecutors but, unlike many Mormons, Rockwell fought back and earned the nickname, "The Avenging Angel". In the west he purportedly killed more men than Wyatt Earp, Doc Holladay, Batt Masterson, and Tom Horn combined. He also held a supernatural mystique to outlaws. He claimed Joseph Smith commanded if he would not cut his hair, he could not die in a fight. Thus, he became known as the latter-day Samson of the West, where outlaws actually gathered about campfires and sang ballads about him.
