Annotation The gunfight at the O.K. Corral with Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday remains the most filmed Wild West showdown and this surprising account explains how eight men stood practically toe to toe in a vacant lot, whipped out their guns, and blasted one another point blank, desperately yanking the triggers on their crude firearms until three were dead with two wounded. The meticulously researched book presents Tombstone as a sophisticated mining boom town featuring fine dining, superb theaters, and telephones. The gunfight didn't occur in the corral but in a nearby lot and the mayhem was an accident sparked by resisting arrest.
Editors Note A revisionist history of the Old West battle challenges popular depictions of such figures as the Earps and Doc Holliday, tracing the influence of a love triangle, renegade Apaches and the citizens of Tombstone. (U.S. history). By the Edgar Award finalist author of Go Down Together.
