Western Authors Series: Marshall Trimble
Marshall Trimble moderates his Arizona Outlaws and Lawmen.
A refuge for outlaws at the close of the 1800s, the Arizona Territory was a wild, lawless land of greedy feuds,
brutal killings and figures of enduring legend. These gunfighters included heroes as well as killers, and some were
considered both. Bandit Pearl Hart committed one of the last recorded stagecoach robberies in the country, and
James Addison Reavis pulled off the most extraordinary real estate scheme in the West. With fearless lawmen like
C.P. Owens and George Ruffner at hand, swift justice was always nearby.
Official state historian of Arizona, Marshall Trimble is an award-winning author, “cowboy philosopher,” educator,
lecturer, folk singer and stage performer. He taught local history for forty years at Scottsdale Community College
and appears frequently on radio and television as the state’s goodwill ambassador. His first book, “Arizona,” was
published in 1977 by Doubleday & Co. in New York, and since then he’s written more than twenty books on
Arizona and the West.
