  1. 4 out of 5

    The scent of sagebrush after a spring rain; the sound of wagons rolling down dusty Nevada roads; and the lively music and rough & tumble sounds of a mining camp all entered my mind as I lost myself in LOGAN….

    –Doug Gist, President, Silver State National Police Officers Museum

  2. 5 out of 5

    LOGAN reminds us of the dangers of being a lawman in the West, and of life caught up in a mining rush.

    –Michael Green, Professor of History, College of Southern Nevada

  3. 4 out of 5

    This tale is timeless in its message; how the loss of an officer in the line of duty impacts his family, fellow officers, and his community.

    –Madeline Neumann, National President, Concerns of Police Survivors

  4. 4 out of 5

    Law and order, liquor and ladies of the night, and loyalty to family make this book a fascinating work of Nevada History!

    –Michael E. Fischer, Former Director, Nevada Department of Cultural Affairs and Independent Scholar in Nevada history

  5. This is my style of Old West history: gritty, truthful, and edged with poignant sadness.
    -Bob Boze Bell, Executive Editor, True West magazine
