A Killer Is What They Needed: The True, Untold Story of Commodore Perry Owens

SKU: 364215376135191

 An attractive book, well researched and written about an Arizona lawman who is legendary, perhaps more so than Wyatt Earp. This book is the first complete biography of Commodore Perry Owens. Owens was sheriff of Apache County in the Arizona Territory during the Pleasant Valley Feud, and sealed his status as one the legendary lawmen of this period when, on September 4th, 1887 he single-handedly attempted to serve a warrant on the murderer and rustler Andy Cooper at the Blevins Cottage in the town of Holbrook. By the time Sheriff Owens was finished four men lay on the ground. The book thoroughly enamines Owens' life from his childhood in Indiana to his death in Seligman, Arizona in 1919. Includes many never-before-seen photographs.

The book was the winner of the 2013 Arizona/New Mexico award in the "Arizona Biography" category. A well deserved award for the author and publisher.
