Joyce, first congratulations on your new book. I have some questions on the sources you used for your book..
Obviouly the primary contemporary sources are:
1. The actual transcription of the Coroner's inquest.
2. Some version of the Hayhurst manuscript. Turner being the most easily available.
3. The Epitaph reports of the witness testimony.
4. The Nugget reports of the witness testimony.
I have Turner, the transcripts of the Coroner's inquest, and just a few days reports of the Nugget's coverage.
So it would be great to have as much of the sources in one place. I am especially interested if you used the Nugget's version on the testimony.
I wonder if you will put out a Kindle and/or Nook version of the book? While I love my books, I also find the searchability of the electronic media very heapful.

...Be careful! There are a lot on here who think I am a nutter! I try to look at both sides of the incident and so far I have come up favouring the ranchers for the most part so you will find me biased.... more
