Hailed as one of Americas greatest lawmen, John T. Pope lived by the fire in his blood and the gun in his hand. Because John never boasted about how many bad men hed actually been forced to kill, the outlaws he chased from Uintah County, and surrounding regions, have received more notoriety, but Johns fame with a blazing gun and keen intellect was well known to those that knew him.Sheriff Pope despised the yellow cowardice of backshooters and badmen, and he rode on the trail of many. Butch Cassidy offered as much as $4,000 reward for the death of the tough-as-nails sheriff. Unmarked graves bear witness that a few fools tried to collect.John T. Pope was a genuine hero of the American west, fighting to make brighter and safer communities for future generations. He was an entrepreneur, pioneer, patriot, rancher, trapper, freighter, tracker, lawman, attorney, and family man.
