Annotation Discusses the old ways of law enforcement as practiced by the rural Texas sheriff before 1965. The author interviewed current (at time of publication) and former sheriffs from across the state whose careers in some cases spanned more than thirty years. The stories reveal not only their unique character in maintaining law and order but also their important social role in the community as marriage counselor, friend and confidant, arbiter over property disputes, and legal advisor. Strong language and violence.
