Overview

Orphaned and alone at seventeen, I went to live with our neighbors. Then the man of the house took a fancy to me, stole my virginity, and I run off. On the stage, I met a woman who took me under her wing and taught me to survive by way of the world's oldest profession in Tombstone.

Then the sweetest man asked me to be his missus, and my life changed yet again. We were happy and worked hard, but nothing ever stayed the same for long. Life sure dealt me some blows and taught me just what a strong woman I could be when necessary.

Editorial Reviews

In Genevieve Of Tombstone, John Duncklee has written an original, highly recommended western novel set in the Tombstone, Arizona during the 1880s, a time when the Earps and the Clantons were typical examples of the men who ranged from ranchers and lawmen to gunslingers and rustlers. But in that frontier community there was also a woman of great spirit, toughness and heart called Genevieve. A free spirit whether she was working in a fancy house or running her own cattle spread, Genevieve made her own way in a time when, and place where, men with guns thought they were in charge.
