- The High Sheriffs of New Mexico and Arizona 1846-1912
- By: Larry D. Ball
- Narrated by: Scott Carrico
- Length: 12 hrs and 8 mins
Elected for two-year terms, frontier sheriffs were the principal peace-keepers in counties that were often larger than New England states. As officers of the court, they defended settlers and protected their property from the ever-present violence on the frontier. Their duties ranged from tracking down stagecoach robbers and serving court warrants to locking up drunks and quelling domestic disputes.
Only for history buffs

Dry set of facts.
More suited for a textbook of western history, not for a tale of western lawmen
