Description: A compelling and accurate look at the Old West’s most famous dentist. This “colorful romp” is profusely Illustrated with rare photos–the photograph of Doc with his mother on page four has never been published. Over 80 color illustrations by the author help to flesh out Doc Holliday and his world so that we can almost smell and hear Tombstone, Dodge City and the frontier boomtowns he frequented. If you have seen the movies Tombstone and Wyatt Earp, you no doubt have many questions about Doc.
- Did Doc Holliday kill Johnny Ringo like he did in the movie Tombstone?
- Were the movies accurate when it came to Wyatt Earp and Doc’s relationship?
- Did Doc really fire three shots from a double-barreled shotgun like he did in the movie Tombstone?
- Who’s better–Val Kilmer as Doc in Tombstone or Dennis Quaid as Doc and Wyatt Earp?
- What happened to Big Nose Kate?
All these questions and more are answered in this comprehensive and historically accurate look at Doc Holliday. Written in a no-nonsense, straight ahead style, this revolutionary, new style history book is informative for young and old alike.
