The book offers a sideways glance at Doc Holliday without any pretence at pure biography. Many of the historical facts about the towns, hotels, streets, etc. added a very nice element to this very different treatment of Doc. I enjoyed the book for exactly for its lightness. It captured the gentillity and education of Doc in a way that was neither snobbish or condescending.

I cannot comment on the historical accuracy of this book because I know little of the history of the west. I will say that this is the most readable history of Doc Holliday. I have read several because I live in the area where he was born and raised.

Highly recommended.

I enjoyed this book very much. A brilliant read. If you have ever seen the movie Tombstone with Val Kilmer and Kurt Russell then as you read the book its like they were taken straight out of the movie and placed in the pages!!

The only bad points and yes, I am afraid there is some, is that the author repeats himself a time or two and when trying to describe a location, I could not picture where he was talking about.

Other than that, a brillant book!! One of my favorites.
