Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Doc Holiday's name is immediately recognizable, but what most people know of him is based on romanticized accounts played out in the movies. This 1957 biography unearths the real Holiday, who in truth was a gambler and shootist but also a respectable citizen devoted to his mother.
