When Outlaws Wore Badges (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Lawman or outlaw? Black-hatted "villains" and white-hatted "good guys" of the Old West walk the streets of our imagination. Hollywood draws a convenient line in the Western dirt, differentiating between the two. But in reality, at times it was difficult, if not impossible to distinguish who was who. Shadowy faces roamed the West.

When Outlaws Wore Badges explores the world of lawman and outlaw wrapped into one person. At times the badge speaks, other times-the gun. Living in the Old West was not easy. Often, law and justice were left behind in the east, when men migrated to the open lands of the West. Some men took advantage of fluid regulations while others found themselves helping to invent and enforce law and order. A few men did both.

New Mexico native Melody Groves loves Western history. Enchanted by where she grew up, as a youngster, she and her family explored ghost towns, which sparked her imagination. Horses, tumbleweeds, the sky, characters who impacted the Western mystique, charged through her mind. They still do. Winner of numerous writing awards, she writes for True West, Enchantment Magazine, New Mexico Magazine, Wild West among others. In 2018, she won the prestigious National Press Women Award for her True West Magazine article on Albuquerque's First Town Marshal who got himself (justifiably) hanged.
