From the Publisher
"As a biographer of John Henry "Doc" Holliday, I can only be envious of Victoria Wilcox’s telling of his story. The facts of a life so intriguing—and the gaps in the facts—are cruel dampers to the historian, limited as he is by the record. Wilcox pursues the truth in a powerful and moving novel that is not tainted by the legend of its central character, trapped by the documentary evidence of his life, or tempted to ignore history. She tells his story with an intimate voice that is surprisingly fresh and compelling. Here, Doc is alive and his world real—wonderfully so.'"
—Dr. Gary Roberts, bestselling author of "Doc Holliday: The Life and Legend
"'This wonderfully written novel brings together one of the great stories of the American Frontier. Author Wilcox has done a superb job through fiction of creating a sense of time and place and giving us an intriguing look at one of the most controversial figures in the West—Dr. John Henry Holliday.'"
—Casey Tefertiller, Author of "Wyatt Earp: The Life Behind the Legend"
"Through her intimate, firsthand knowledge of Doc Holliday, his youthful environs and his living relatives, Victoria Wilcox has discovered and distilled much of Doc's actual history, weaving it in with passed-down family folklore. This firsthand account of Doc's travels and acquaintances rivals other historical novels like Gettysburg and Killing Lincoln. Although much of Doc's life is shrouded in mystery, Wilcox's Inheritance is the best book yet that traces his life, entertainingly mixing known historical facts with educated guesses. It is a must read for anyone searching for a seamless Doc Holliday biography."
--Don Weber, New York Times Bestselling author of Silent Witness
