In a region with a reputation for crooked lawmen, Bobby Medford is that rare exception: caught and convicted.

Bounty huntert, debt collector and addict, he left behind a trail strewn with guns, drugs, bodies and cash. Pure Bunkum offers a reporter's-eye view of the way public corruption proliferates, even when "everyone knows" what's going on, told by an award-winning journalist with an eye for the absurd.
