As one of the authors early works, this one isn't quite as well written as some of his later works, however the information contained within the book is valuable to the western history buff and historian. Mr. Metz gets 99% of the facts correct, and any deviation from factual information may be in my eyes, not in his writing/information. Stoudenmire was an interesting fellow, who came into one of the roughest towns in the old west, and made things peaceful as possible considering the lawless nature of the location (between Texas, New Mexico and Mexico) where outlaws could easily slip over one of the nearby borders. Stoudenmire also had to contend with the Texas Ranger contingent nearby, which at the time was not an easy task. Mr. Leon Metz is a highly respected author, and expert on El Paso history and this book should be in every western history buffs library.
Leon C. Metz was a great author and storyteller with unique writing humor. This book was based on true events. It was well researched and written. I have absolutely no doubts that Mr. Metz attempts to bring out favorable traits of Stoudenmire in order to help him gain much deserved respect and nationwide recognition. Stoudenmire enforced the laws no differently than Wyatt Earp, Pat Garrett and Elfego Baca. Stoudenmire deserves the same honor. Stoudenmire's period in this town was awfully short, but very colorful. Stoudenmire had no fear, not even guns or death. He was able to outdraw every opponent. He sent his wild bullets to harvest souls and sent men on their last jolting rides to the cemetery. His large structure and deadly reputation were all El Paso needed to send hard-cored violent outlaws whining and putting their tails between their shaking legs into hiding or digging their own graves. Stoudenmire's toughness and courage was no match for the outlaws combined together.

This book is highly recommended for folks who seek excitement in Wild West justice and a wild marshal to match!
