KSUT’s Four Corners: One Book program continues in July with a book chosen by a fantastic book club that meets every first Tuesday of the month at Moonlight Books in Pagosa Springs. The dedicated group of bibliophiles has chosen author Hampton SidesBlood and Thunder: An Epic of the American West.

Jerry Rohwer, who runs Moonlight Books with his wife Joan, says the club chose Hampton Sides’ work because of both the author and the book’s connection to the region. “Hampton Sides has been to Pagosa Springs in the past,” says Rohwer, “and the Fred Harmon Art Museum has an aspen tree log with [Kit] Carson’s name carved on it.”

Blood and Thunder: An Epic of the American West is a book that brings the history of the American conquest of the West to life. It uses Kit Carson as the central character and includes many other heroes and villains who embody the experience of the wild American West.

“Rick Collignon is a marvelous writer, in my opinion. To say that the stories in his Northern New Mexico trilogy are engaging would be an understatement. I was wondering what he was going to do next. Alas, I must wait until Tuesday to obtain a copy of his new book.”
