The more research I did, the more I understood that previous tellings had only scratched the surface. The story was big, rich, and very complex. There were so many protagonists acting at cross purposes, and many of them, thankfully, were made for fiction. Somewhere along the way, I realized that I was lucky to have found a tale of community, corruption, and chaos that had never really been told.In addition to SALT WARRIORS, Cool has written about the frontier for Wild West and True West magazines, Texas Rangers’ Dispatch, Journal of Big Bend Studies, and other publications. SALT WARRIORS: INSURGENCY ON THE RIO GRANDE has already won the Robert A. Calvert Book Prize.
