Ken Butler was a fantastic person and a truly missed member of Oklahombres. His articles have appeared numerous times in the Oklahombres Journal. This new book will be a welcome addition to our heritage.

Larry Yadon is also a member of Oklahombres and I know from talking with him that he and his co-author have been working very hard on their book for several years. It is also greatly anticipated by all historians.

Ken's new book is fantastic. I have just finished reading an advanced copy and it is roughly twice the size of the his first book and is absolutely LOADED with photographs.

I would definitely recommend picking up a copy to add to your law enforcement collection.
