I think John Byrne Cooke's THE SNOWBLIND MOON won both the Novel of the West Spur and the Medicine Pipe Bearer's Award (technically not a Spur, although it's given by the WWA) for Best First Novel.

One of Cooke's other historical novels, THE COMMITTEE OF VIGILANCE, is about San Francisco's Barbary Coast and might be hardboiled enough to interest some readers here.
