Campo: The Forgotten Gunfight bookcover

Campo: The Forgotten Gunfight is an historical novel carefully researched and written by Bryon Harrington. It is based on the true story of the Campo Gunfight that took place December 4, 1875, in the small California border town of Campo. This story takes many twists and turns as it follows the Gaskill Brothers, who settled the town of Campo along the Mexican border and the bandidos who crossed the border to commit a daring daylight robbery of the entire town. It begins in the spring of 1875 after the hanging of Tiburcio Vasquez, the infamous and legendary California bandit, and follows Tiburcio's second in command, Clodoveo Chavez, and the rest of the bandits on a bloody trail all the way to Campo. If you thought the OK Corral was exciting, wait until you read this and learn how the West was really won.

Bryon Harrington has been a student of the Old West for as long as he can remember. Growing up in a small town in Vermont, he spent his childhood reading the Western tales of Louis L'Amour and Zane Grey and watching his Western heroes on television and on the silver screen. It was inevitable that he would end up living in the West. His first Western adventure was hitchhiking cross-country at the young age of 21. Seven years later, he drove west again and settled in the back country of San Diego County near the Mexican border. It didn't take long for him to join the "Gaskill Brothers Gunfighters," an Old West reenactment team. Soon, he became a noted western actor, quick-draw artist, bullwhip expert and gold prospector, among other talents. More than twenty years later, he is presently the skit director for the "Hole in the Wall Gang," another reenactment group. He knew immediately that the Campo gunfight was a significant event in the history of the Old West, but no one had ever written a book about the December 4, 1875 shootout. After more than ten years of research and nearly two years of writing, the amazing story is now complete and ready for the Old West enthusiast and the Western history buff. Here's a story that you probably have never heard of, but one that you won't soon forget - Campo: The Forgotten Gunfight.
