Virgil Earp

Virgil Earp : Western Peace Officer

As a peace officer in Prescott, Arizona, Virgil experienced his first street shootout, and it was there he met his future nemesis, Johnny Behan. In 1880, Virgil's brothers joined him in Tombstone, Arizona. Acting as both a town marshal of Tombstone and a U.S. deputy marshal, he led the Earp gang to the fateful gunfight at the O.K. Corral. Most records stop here, but Chaput fleshes out the rest of Virgil's life in California, Nevada, and other western states as a peace officer, gambler, miner and rancher. Now, for the first time, Chaput removes Virgil from the shadows of Wyatt and tells in detail the real leader of the Earp clan.

Doc Holliday : The Gunfighter

He came from the American South, a gentleman by breeding, a dentist by training, a gambler by vocation. But as Dr. John H.

Street Fight in Tombstone, Near the O.K. Corral


Tombstone's Early Years

Tombstone, the Arizona town of morbid name and violent memories, at last has a chronicler who is as interested in facts as in legend. Myers has written the story of Tombstone's early years with painstaking research and commendable respect for verifiable records.

Tombstone's Epitaph

The news stories collected in this book are on-the-spot accounts and running news bulletins (including verbatim testimony) of the OK Corral gunfight and the trial that followed. But Tombstone's Epitaph is also the history of a frontier town as told through the eyes of its reporters. Editor John Clum (a former Indian agent) printed the truth as he saw it, mincing neither words nor opinions. His stories of "sporting men" such as Johnny-Behind-the-Deuce and "sporting women" such as Diamond Annie were printed alongside stories of mining enterprises, gambling, fires, stagecoach robberies, church socials and family picnics, births, weddings, and deaths.
