Violence is random and routine in Dodge City, Kansas, in 1878, but when the burned body of a mixed-blood boy named Johnnie Sanders is discovered, his death shocks a part-time policeman named Wyatt Earp and is a matter of strangely personal importance to Doc Holliday.
Annotation:
Blending historical fact, legend, and her own invention, Mary Doria Russell imagines the early life and Wild West success of John Henry Holliday, better known as DOC, one of the most famous gunfighters of American frontier expansion. Stricken with tuberculosis shortly after finishing dental school, young Holliday discards his patrician Georgia upbringing for the drier climes Southwest Texas, where he stakes his livelihood on his skill and hustle at card-playing. When extracting money from hardscrabble border rustlers proves no easier than pulling teeth, Holliday and his courtesan companion Maria ride to bustling Dodge City, where the young gambler begins his storied and deadly friendship with deputy marshal Wyatt Earp.
