Salon & Saloon Lecture Series: Tom Jeffords – Friend of Cochise

March 19 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Salon & Saloon Lecture Series:
Tom Jeffords – Friend of Cochise
Saturday, March 19th, 7 pm
$5 per Zoom link

Author Doug Hocking tells the true story of a man who headed west drawn by the lure of the Pike’s Peak Gold Rush in 1858; made a life for himself over a decade as he scouted for the army, prospected, became a businessman; then rode alone into Cochise’s camp to negotiate the peace. While the myths surrounding these events may have clouded the truth a bit, Jeffords was almost as brave and impressive as legend had it.

Although his roots are in Cornwall and New England, Doug Hocking grew up on the Jicarilla Apache Reservation in North Central New Mexico.  Hocking is the author of Tom Jeffords: Friend of Cochise, and in 2018, he won a Spur Award from Western Writers of America and a Co-founders Award from Westerners International for the book.
