ONLINE EXTRAS

THE GAMBLERS’ WAR IN TOMBSTONE
“It raged during the fall and winter of 1880–81,” wrote longtime Wild West contributor Roger Jay (who died in 2014), “and if the Earp brothers and Doc Holliday had lost it, they’d have had no choice but to clear out of Tombstone, Arizona Territory.”

WHERE THE PRONGHORNS PLAY
New Mexico historian Dan Flores is a Western Writers of America 2016 Spur finalist in short nonfiction for this close look at a wild Western animal whose size, form and speed call to mind African antelopes.
