    Beyond the movie 'Tombstone,' a true American legend comes to life

    A very interesting perspective that is objectively edited through extensive and intelligent footnotes by Glenn Boyer, which in themselves hold a treasure-trove of history and encourages the reader to dig deeper as desired--filled with characters from the Old West and beyond.

    A reviewer

    Josephine Marcus Earp was born with a sense of adventure, she ran away from a prosperous and loving home in San Francisco not to join the circus, but a theatrical troupe playing Gilbert and Sullivan¿s H.M.S. Pinafore that was bound for Tombstone. Young, attractive and impressionable is a prescription for trouble in a mining town. Josie accepted Johnny Behan¿s offer of marriage before she had time to look over the whole field, and it came back to haunt her. Behan bought her a ring but put off the wedding. Wyatt Earp caught Josie¿s eye and opened up a classic love triangle. Then to further complicate matters both suitors were in a race to become the next sheriff of Cochise County. Josie¿s accounts of Tombstone are right on the mark and two of her best friends Addie Bourland and Marietta Spencer have inside knowledge regarding two of Tombstone¿s major happenings ¿ the shootout at the OK Corral and the murder of Morgan Earp. Josie tells about the bloodletting after the shootout and how in order to get out of the line of fire Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday along with several allies leave Tombstone and go to Colorado. Josie followed Wyatt a short time later and they soon got married. While they were in Colorado they spent time with Doc Holliday and Bat Masterson and did some mining in the Gunnison area. Then it was on to the silver strike at Coeur d¿Alene, Idaho and the gold fields of Alaska. Back in the states Wells Fargo hired Wyatt to do some detective work in Texas. When that job was finished they traveled to San Diego, California in search of business opportunities. The two dined out went to parties, attended the theatre and saw the famous Lily Langtry perform in Shakespeare¿s ¿As You Like It.¿ Wyatt made a number of profitable investments in both saloons and real estate. He also won a fine trotting racehorse in a poker game. That one horse peaked Wyatt¿s interest in racing and he eventually bought and raced a sizeable stable of horses. Following those days on the racing circuit and a stint as a boxing promoter Wyatt and Josie settled in and lived out their lives in Los Angeles entertaining and being entertained by Hollywood¿s burgeoning movie community. Wyatt died in 1929 and Josie lived until 1944. Josephine Marcus Earp tells a compelling story of an era filled with colorful characters and fascinating events. Tom Barnes author of ¿Doc Holliday¿s Road to Tombstone¿

    Not what I expected

    While this includes engaging recolections about thier life together (from the OK Corral to the Alaskan gold rush), Mrs. Earp is contradicted through out the entire book by Mr. Boyer- he even goes as far to say that they were never married, or at least he has never found proof. Wyatt Earp and his legend are an integral part of the romance of the Old West. If you want to hear Josie Earps side of the story, dont read Mr. Boyer's notes.
