Driving around Colorado, it’s easy to stumble on small towns and saloons made famous by cowboys and gunslingers from the 19th century. I was passing through Glenwood Springs when I remembered that Doc Holiday spent his final days there, trying to remedy his tuberculosis at the Yampah hot springs. I’ve seen the western movies and heard the legends, but I didn’t know much about the truth behind the iconic western figures like Doc Holiday and Wyatt Earp.
The Last Gunfight by Jeff Guinn is almost an anti-western. Instead of telling embellished stories of larger than life characters acutely defined as good or bad, it tells the true story of flawed characters and what really went down in the boomtown of Tombstone, Arizona. There is a lot more to the history than some drunken cowboys standing off with six-shooters in the middle of an abandoned street. Politics, business and pride were all part of the famous shooting at the O.K. Coral and the events that transpired played an important part in Western history.
So while this is absolutely a western tale, don’t expect the heroes and Hollywood cowboy battles. Expect the facts, which may be slightly less adrenaline pumping, but certainly no less fascinating. Buy here on Amazon
