By Joseph Gavett
Minot native Joseph Gavett has published his ninth book about how a young man form Nebraska came to be a U.S. Marshal, and the men he brought to justice.
In Michael Delaney: U.S. Marshall Dakota Territory, Gavett, who now leves in Tacoma, Washington, blends fact and fiction into a story that begins on a Nebraska farm in 1853. The story unfolds through the late 19th century in Deadwood, Belle Fourche, Dickinson and Bismarck, Dakota Territory.
