Editorial Reviews

Booklist

"A particularly interesting piece of Americana which will appeal especially to readers of westerns in spite of the fact that it topples several television and folklore idols."—Booklist

Time

"The dashing legend surrounding the Earp brothers—Wyatt, Virgil, and Morgan—has been debunked before, but not from this special feminine viewpoint. . . . Yet if he has deflated one dream, Waters, unlike most debunkers, has offered a pleasant vision in its place: that of a gay, gallant old lady in her rocking chair, dreaming of corn-tall buffalo grass and a dead, handsome lover."—Time
