Utilizing official records, newspaper accounts, and oral histories, Cowboys and Gangsters tells the story of the untamed "Wild West" of the Prohibition era of the 1920s and early 1930s and introduces a rogues' gallery of six-gun-packing Western gunfighters and lawmen.
Told through the lens of the accounts of a handful of Texas rangers and federal agents, this book covers a unique and action-packed era in American history. It's a story that connects the horse and saddle days of the Old West with the high-octane decade of the Roaring '20s.

A fun listen to a exciting corner of history
Would you try another book from Samuel K. Dolan and/or Pete Bradbury?
What other book might you compare Cowboys and Gangsters to and why?
Earp and Fisher's "US Marshals" and Calvin's "Dodge City". Both are books about the history of law enforcement that are fun and exciting like this one.
Would you listen to another book narrated by Pete Bradbury?
Maybe. If it was non-fiction I would. I'm not sure he could pull off a fiction story.
Was Cowboys and Gangsters worth the listening time?
Yes. I loved it so much I bought dead tree versions for family members.
