Notorious Telluride

By: Turner, Carol
Price: $19.99

History Press, Charleston, SC., 2010. From the dustcover: "While today's Telluride might bring to mind a hot tourist spot and upscake ski resort, the earliest days of the town and surrounding San Miguel County were marked by an abundance of gamblers, con men and murderers. From Bob Meldrum, a deputized killer who prowled the streets during times of labor unrest, to the author's own ancestor, Charlie Turner, a brash young man killed in a shooting in Ophir, Carol Turner's 'Notorious Telluride' offers a glimpse at some of the sordid, shocking and sad pioneer tales of the era." Paperback, 126 pages.
