Doug Hocking Western Author is my guest.  Website:  www.doughocking.com Doug Hocking is an independent scholar and author of fiction who has completed advanced studies in History, Ethnography and Historical Archaeology and lives and breathes Way Out West. His principal interest is in New Mexico Territory from the Mexican War up through the Civil War. It was an exciting period when the land was new and isolated from the rest of the country and violence ran at its high mark. Following leads from source to end he is learning about the Santa Fe Trail, the Fur Trade, the Mexican and Civil Wars, the Apache, the Penitentes and percussion cap weapons.

“I’ve found that the way to know history is to learn about the tools people used, the landscape, the trails, the climate and the economics of the times until the options open to people begin to make sense. I try to express that both in fiction and history writing.”
