“The most imaginative creator of pulp melodrama never, in his wildest dreams, produced as wild a story as Durand lived in his last eleven days. If it had been portrayed on the screen, no one would have believed it could be real.”
As a result of the twenty-six year old Wyoming desperado’s crime spree, seven men died, Durand included. Beginning with an elk poach, it took three dozen posse men, a detachment of Montana National Guardsmen armed with howitzer and mortar, an airplane carrying tear gas and dynamite bombs to flush him out. Even this was not the climax. A true account that reads like fiction.
