But Bullock was much more than the frontier law enforcer portrayed in fictional accounts. In Seth Bullock: Black Hills Lawman, David Wolff examines the life work of Bullock as he helped build Deadwood, found the town of Belle Fourche, and promote the Black Hills.Wolff explores the many ventures that Bullock delved into once he moved from Montana to the Black Hills at the start of the gold rush in 1876.

He points out that Bullock quickly became an integral part of the burgeoning community, attempting to create a lasting legacy for himself by working within local and regional politics, through his various businesses, and in his many positions at the forefront of Black Hills law enforcement and forest management.Bullock’s life epitomized that of many entrepreneurs and pioneers across the nation, and Wolff describes the struggles and successes that this thinker and dreamer experienced in his forty-three years in the Black Hills.This is an excellent addition to any Western history collection, whether personal or library.

Its a quick introduction to a variety of aspects of Bullocks, and South Dakotan, development.—D. Whelan, www.amazon.comA fascinating and readable biography. Having only come across Seth Bullock in the Deadwood TV series I found that this book brought to life the real person behind the legend.—www.librarything.comWithout hesitation, I would recommend this book be on the bookshelf of anyone interested not only in South Dakotas history, but the history of the Wild West.—Wild West History Association Journal
