From the dust jacket- "Lawyer-historian William A. Keleher gives fresh insight to the history of southeastern New Mexico through his discovery and interpretation of important new facts. Notes and Profiles appended to each chapter are capsule human-interest stories of participants in the development of the New Mexican frontier. The result, told calmly, but carrying its own excitement, is the story of a feud which became a conflagration without parallel in the American West."
