264 pages. Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. AMERICAN WEST. "If you want to understand the Code of the West, A Rough Ride to Redemption is a good place to start. Historians Robert K. DeArment and Jack DeMattos brilliantly trace gunman Ben Daniels's amazing career from the Wyoming Territorial Penitentiary to Dodge City to charging up Kettle Hill with Teddy Roosevelt in the Spanish-American War. A marvelous book! "&emdash; Douglas Brinkley author of The Wilderness Warrior: Theodore Roosevelt and the Crusade for America He may be little known today, but Ben Daniels was a feared gunman who typified the journeyman gunfighter every bit as much as those whose names have become legend. Yet his story has eluded researchers and yarn-spinners alike&emdash; until now. Two prominent western historians have teamed up to tell the story of Ben Daniels's rise from outlaw and convict to presidential protégé and high-ranking officer of the law. Tracing his life from jailhouse to White House, from Dodge City to San Juan Hill, Robert DeArment and Jack DeMattos present a full-length biography of Daniels, the most controversial of Teddy Roosevelt's "White House Gunfighters." The book faithfully traces Daniels's early years, the time he spent in the Wyoming Territorial Penitentiary, his rebirth as a Dodge City lawman&emdash; including the controversy over his shooting a man in the back&emdash; and his part in the Battle of Cimarron. Following military service with the Rough Riders in the Spanish-American War, Daniels was appointed by President Roosevelt as U.S. marshal for turbulent Arizona Territory. Daniels was as quick with his mind as with a gun, but he had a rough ride to redemption. This original biography belongs on the shelf of every gunfighter buff and anyone interested in the broader story of the Old West. It rescues Daniels from the footnotes of history and shows us the amazing life of one of the West's most intriguing gunmen.
