Tension between the two groups of lawmen grew until the inevitable happened.
Even though this isn't the genre that I typically write in, I felt compelled to write about this event. Especially after learning that this event had never been written about before, othr that in the newsI found that the Colorado Historic Newspaper Collection had many, if not all, articles leading up to and following the shootout. I couldn't believe some of the subject matter and detail in those articles. It took quite a while to decipher the old photo copies, but was well worth it. With the organizations permission, I included these articles in the back half of my book, which I titled Shootout at the El Moro: A Tragedy in Durango.
