    New Mexico Historical Biographies is an encyclopedia of the people of New Mexico—the 47th State in the Union. It is a cross-section of people who have had an influence on life—and sometimes death—in the Land of Enchantment, from the time before the first Europeans arrived around 1540 until today. There are entries for over 1,500 people in New Mexico’s history. Possibly the most important book on New Mexico history since Ralph Emerson Twitchell — 100 years ago. This volume builds on Volumes I & II of New Mexico Biographical Dictionary.

    Duels, Gunfights & Shoot-outs
    Wild Tales from the Land of Enchantment
    by Don Bullis

    New Mexico, like all states and territories in the American West, has had its share of violence over the years. Too often, fights resulting in death were nugatory in nature: a dispute over a flock of turkeys, a drunken revelry, one man’s personal dislike of another, petty theft. Other fights were far more important: peace officers killed as they performed their duties, criminals shot down as they assaulted society in one way or another. Violence, it is said, results when attempts at civility have failed, but the fact is that more often than not, the attempt is not made.

    New Mexico’s Finest
    Peace Officers Killed in the Line of Duty by Don Bullis


    Nearly 200 men and women have died while working as peace officers in New Mexico since 1846, the year that New Mexico became a part of the United States. This book tells each officer’s story. A number of these law officers died in the violent days of New Mexico’s frontier in the years between the end of the U.S. Civil War and the turn of the century in 1901. No matter the details, each of these officers is deserving of recognition, and commendation for offering up the ultimate sacrifice: his or her life.
