season of terror book cover

"Season of Terror," University Press of Colorado, is the first book-length treatment of the story of the Espinosas, San Luis Valley-based serial murderers with a mission to kill every Anglo in Civil War-era Colorado Territory, and the men that brought them down. This book, releasing soon, covers the events and significance of this bit of Colorado and San Luis Valley history and examines the complexity and controversy surrounding this issue.

With the book's release imminent, the San Luis Valley Museum and Adams State University Community Partnerships will host author Charles F. Price as he gives a book reading, signing, and discussion. The event begins at 1 p.m. Sunday, June 30, at the San Luis Valley Museum, corner of Fourth St. and Hunt Ave. in Alamosa. The event is free and open to the public.

Novelist-turned-historian Price is a full-time writer living in North Carolina and previously published five novels. "Season of Terror" is his first nonfiction book. For more information, call the SLV Museum at 719-587-0667.
