- 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.

No "Story" to this story.
What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
I was expecting a few antidotes from History New Mexico/Arizona LE, instead this well intentioned book is a collection of names and dates. Thousands of names and dates.
What was most disappointing about Larry D. Ball’s story?
There was not "story" to the story.
Which character – as performed by Scott Carrico – was your favorite?
Carrico did a great job, but he had little to work with.
