Bring 'em Back Alive Sid-The Life and Times of Sheriff Williamsby Donald Ray Williams
BRING ‘EM BACK ALIVE SID (Charles Sidney Williams, Sr.) is a historical biography of the pioneer homesteader, rancher, horseman, and sheriff. Sid’s life spanned almost the entire post Civil War-pre World War II time period, but his story here is concerned primarily with the law enforcement problems of northwest Nebraska during the prohibition and depression eras.
Law enforcement of northwest Nebraska during this time reveals the cultural aspects and the trials and tribulations of the people who homesteaded and established homes, farms, and ranches. Drought and low commodity prices resulted in many foreclosures and hardships. Some land owners attempted to ameliorate their poor conditions by the illegal manufacture of stills and the production of ‘moonshine’ liquor. A few saw an opportunity to make a great deal of money. The poor economic times finally ended with the advent of World War II.
