Massacre at Point of Rocks by Doug Hocking – Book Event – Saturday, April 20, 2pm
Hear this gripping tale of historic events along the Santa Fe Trail in 1849. James White took his
family ahead of the slow moving caravan to rush his wife and child to safety and comfort in Santa
Fe. Met at Point of Rocks by Jicarilla Apaches, James was soon dead and his wife and child taken.
Bounty hunters, dragoon cavalry and militia, even Kit Carson, were soon on the trail hunting for the
woman and her child. Doug Hocking is an independent scholar who has completed advanced
studies in American history, ethnology and historical archaeology. A retired Army officer who has
lived among the Jicarilla Apache and paisanos of the Rio Arriba in northern New Mexico, he’s an
engaging and delightful speaker. $7.50 adult, $4.50 youth 7-13, children free. Seating is limited;
please call for reservations.
