Thomas Cobb - With Blood in Their Eyes

Colfax Avenue: Thomas Cobb, the author of Crazy Heart and Shavetail as well as an award-winning short-story collection entitled Acts of Contrition, will read from and sign his new book With Blood in Their Eyes (U.of Arizona Press). On February 10, 1918, John Power, his brother Tom, and his father woke to the sound of bells and horses’ hooves. Then gunfire erupted, and so began the day when the Power brothers engaged the Graham County Sheriff’s Department in the bloodiest shootout in Arizona history. Grappling with themes of loyalty, masculinity, technology, and honor, this sweeping saga reveals the passion and brutality of frontier life in Arizona a hundred years ago. Richly authentic and beautifully written, With Blood in Their Eyes breathes dramatic new life into this nearly forgotten episode of the American West.
