I don't know if it's the truth but it is a great story. I read this book twice and found it to be very interesting. Wyatt was not a town marshall Virgil was but Wyatt had great influence on his brothers Some people didn't like him because he was a republican. Most of cowboys were democrats (crooks and theives). But this book is one I wolud recomend. Some of the story came from Josie Earp since Wyatt died before Lake could get all the information he wantedfrom Wyatt. Sincerly Bill Kettle
I have read this book,and I have enjoyed it to the fullest and recommend it. I am sure there are those who agree and disagree.That is their choice,just like it is my choice to like it and support it. One must read and decide for themselves. I am sure Wyatt was not a perfect person,just like none of us are. The real thing that happened can only be determined by those that were actually there and their accounts,which is this book for one. Again,I feel this is close to what really happened.There will always be more than one side of a story or an event.This is the good side. Thank You.
i'm an old west reenactor from wichita kansas and i found this book to be nothing but a big lie wyatt earp was never a city marshal here he was a part time police officer and part time maintenance man he shot stray dogs and fixed loose boardwalks and he was fired from the police force after he got into a fight with the city marshal and was run out of town by the city elders and before he left for dodge city he took off with some city tax money. wyatt earp was no saint but stuart lake made him one with this book.it's nothing but a big joke
I have read about half of the book and found it to be exciting, consistent with what I have read from other sources. The writer does a good job of interpreting what he has learned from Mr. Earp. There are two sides to every story, and Im sure there are people who would have negative things to say about Mr. Earp. I find myself wanting to believe this book.
I visited Tombstone for vacation.I got interested in the subject of Wyatt Earp.So I bought this book right in Tombstone.I was drawn in from the opening pages.Wyatt Earps life was what you see in the old westerns.Quite exciting.A guy I work with,who's from Tucson,said not to believe a word of this book.That Wyatt Earp was a no good scoundrel who hid behind a badge.I don't know if he's right after reading this.The author backs up a lot of what Wyatt say's by interviewing people who were around at the time.
