San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department, California –Images of America series. By: M. David DeSoucy with foreword by Sheriff Gary Penrod. San Bernardino is the largest county in the continental USA and has seen its share of colorful pursuits of suspects and fugitives, including the search for the last Native American in the USA to be tracked to his tragic end by a lawman’s posse: “Willie Boy’ at Ruby Mountain. San Bernardino County was the setting for the shoot-out at Baldy Mesa and Lytle Creek. Yet gunplay lore is one aspect of the epic of this County Sheriff’s Department. Today the department deploys nearly 5,000 salaried and volunteer employees to protect and serve its 20,186 square miles of deserts, mountains, forest, and increasingly urban areas. Author and historian, M. David DeSoucy is a retired veteran of 25 years of service in the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department. The extensive photographs are a glossary of the events, investigations, and other exploits of this County. This is a true preservation of local heritage. Softbound. B&W photos. Pgs. 128
