Denver's wild west

Many people don't think of Denver when they hear the words "wild west." In my research I have read every page of the Rocky Mountain News between 1879 and 1896. The saloon shootings, gambling hall murders, hi-jenks, crime and mayhem are every bit evident in Denver as they were in the smaller typical "wild west" towns and camps.
