A superbly researched biography of a town and county. Silver City and Old Grant County's history has not been told before in such fascinating and exciting detail. It's all here - Apaches such as Geronimo, Mangas Coloradas and Victorio, Billy the Kid, the Earps and Kit Joy. Tough lawmen walked Silver City's streets and chased down owlhoots. But the everyday folk are well represented as well: townspeople, miners, soldiers, school teachers and store owners. This corner of New Mexico Territory held all elements of humanity; reading its history is like holding up a mirror to the entire Western adventure.
