JEFF MILTON. A Good Man with a Gun. With Drawings by Harold D. Bugbee

Norman: University of Oklahoma Press, 1948. First edition. Hardcover. "I never killed a man that didn't need killing; I never shot an animal except for meat". Jeff Davis Milton was no western gunman. His answer to those who classed him as such were these apt and honest words. Yet for almost seventy adventurous years, Jeff Milton confidently gambled with death among the most dangerous men of the West. He was a symbol of his age in a wild and sparsely settled region, the frontiers of Texas, Arizona, and Old and New Mexico. He was the law enforcemnt officer who ultimately made settlement possible. 430pp with index. A very good solid copy with gilt stamping on spine in a very good dust jacket. Item #13978
