A book of blood and thunder

-A A +A
By The Staff

Blood and Thunder by Hampton Sides is a must-read for anyone living in or near Las Vegas. Sides begins his story of Kit Carson here, and the whole work touches on many 19th century events that took place in and around San Miguel County — events such as Gen. Kearney’s speech to the citizens of Las Vegas in the Plaza (1848), the Battle of Glorieta Pass (1862), and the Taos Revolt (1847). Sides will be discussing and signing his book at Bridge Street’s Tome on the Range bookshop next Tuesday as part of Las Vegas’ Heritage Week celebration.
