Product Description

Bodie's Boss Lawman

The Frontier Odyssey of Constable John F. Kirgan

by Bill Merrell

BODIE’S BOSS LAWMAN, The Odyssey of Constable John

F. Kirgan, by Bill Merrell, with David Carle. 176 pages, 75 illus., 16 in color, maps, notes, index. Fate brought John Kirgan to Bodie in 1877, where he served as constable, jailer and

deputy sheriff during the boom years. Serving as the “boss lawman” of Bodie was the culmination of Kirgan’s life – an odyssey that placed him in contact with the emerging history

of the American West. The foreword by Stanley Paher consists of a series of lively essays on various aspects of Bodie history: Commerce, Gambling and Saloons, Mining and

Speculation, Bodie’s ‘High’ School, the Jail, Fire, at Home in Bodie, Transportation, and Law and Disorder.
