LOGAN: The Honorable Life and Scandalous Death of a Western Lawman | by Jackie Boor

LOGAN chronicles the dramatic events surrounding the killing of Nye County Sheriff Tom Logan on April 7, 1906. Dressed only in a nightshirt and unarmed, the father of eight children was shot five times after ejecting an unruly gambler from the Jewel, a house of ill-fame in Manhattan, Nevada. Three months later his once-doomed killer was acquitted. Born in Washoe County in 1861, Logan helped early Tonopah earn its reputation as being one of the most peaceable boomtowns in history. During that time, his life became entwined with many fascinating characters, including Jim Butler, Jack Longstreet, Tasker Oddie, John Sparks, Judge Peter Breen, “Diamondfield Jack” Davis, the Pittman brothers, George Wingfield, and future U.S. Senator, Patrick McCarran. With nearly 100 photos and maps, and more than a dozen period poems, “LOGAN is Nevada history at its best,” states former state archivist Guy Rocha. “….but Logan’s great-granddaughter has given the reader something more. Her rigorous research and engaging writing underscore her personal odyssey to find the truth for generations of her family confused and haunted by Logan’s controversial and untimely demise.”

get lost and disappear
Where Grand Adventure had a say
and different would prevail
And where only hardy life hangs on
to all that it entails... Read More
