These are stories about the process of hunting down placenames and people referred to in my books. I’m a huge fan of the PBS series, “History Detective,” and that’s kind of how I feel here. I’m not trying to identify “things,” but mostly placenames. Many of the places referred to in the stories I’m writing for my “Notorious…” books (eg, Notorious Jefferson County and Notorious Telluride) no longer exist. Some of these places have been easy to find but others have taken a bit of detective work to hunt down. It’s really fun. I could do this all day long. I’ve become a history nerd.
