Blood and Thunder by Hampton Sides

Was frontiersman Kit Carson a hero or villain? An explorer and scout who empathized with Native Americans in many respects, Carson was also a ruthless killer when carrying out orders. His “scorched earth” policy against the Navajos is one of the saddest chapters in American history. Rich in detail, Sides’ book is a nuanced portrait that sheds light on how the West was really won.

Come for coffee, camaraderie, and great discussion led by Helen Huntley.

Space is limited; reservations recommended.
