Local Authors Revive Legend of Victorio Peak
By Gary Worth
Las Cruces, NM – If you've lived in southern New Mexico or west Texas for a while you've probably heard the legend involving Victorio Peak located in a remote part of northern Dona Ana County. Legend says it contains a treasure including gold bars. That tale has inspired a new book co-authored by a well known NMSU writer and an author who grew up in El Paso. KRWG's Gary Worth reports on their work a fresh look at an old story that just never seems to die.
