Douglas, AZ: Published By Author, 1976. First Edition. Octavo. Item #025601

The controversial story began when Percy Bowden decided that so many lies were told about him that he got Ervin Bond to write covering his life as "the kid chief of police" in Douglas to his encounters with Burt Alvord and Billy Stiles. He talks about the Mexican Revolution, Prohibition, the labor troubles in World War I and the Bisbee Deportation to becoming involved with Aimee Semple McPherson's "escape" from her "captors". Bound in brown cloth, spine lettering gilt, in unclipped dust jacket rubbed and edge wear.
