Reviews

"With a former newsman's nose for the truth, Clavin has sifted the facts, myths, and lies to produce what might be as accurate an account as we will ever get of the old West's most famous feud." --Associated Press

"Clavin shows that there is more to the story of Tombstone than the Earps and the well-known gunfight. Readers who enjoyed the first two books in this popular history trilogy will look forward to this excellent and fitting conclusion.'" --Library Journal

Rootin'-tootin' history....Updating the old notion that the Earp myth is the American Iliad, the author is at his best when he delineates those fraught spasms of violence. Buffs of the Old West will enjoy Clavin's careful research and vivid writing. --Kirkus Reviews

Clavin briskly sketches dozens of historical figures and gamely interrogates primary and secondary sources to separate fact from fiction. This animated account entertains. --Publishers Weekly

Commemorated in hundreds of books, songs, movies and television shows, the gunfight [at the OK Corral] has often been portrayed as the consummate battle between order and chaos, virtue and vice. But as Clavin reminds us in [his] recent book on the infamous clash, the men behind the badges were hardly exemplars of righteousness. Trot[s] along at a brisk pace. --Wall Street Journal
