For those interested, they might also want to check out "A Little War of Our Own" -- it's by an Arizona historian, Don Dedera, and it recounts the Pleasant Valley War, which was a good deal bloodier than Wyoming's small scrape, and inspired a number of Zane Grey's novels.

The war was a combo of sheepherder-cattleman hatred and a classic family feud, concluding when the last of the Tewksburys murdered the last of the Grahams. Dedera does a good job of covering the whole story, but especially the trial of Ed Tewksbury (he was acquitted).

Recommended.
