Overview

After his youth on an Iowa farm, Wyatt Earp is ready to seek his fortunes by his wits rather than the sweat of his back. In California he meets a Mexican girl, whose philosophy will haunt him for years to come. It is the prophecy of the “adobe moon,” which reminds a man: If you do not achieve your dreams, you must settle for what you have.

After taking menial jobs, Wyatt settles down as a constable in Missouri. When his wife and child die, he sinks into depression where the lines of ethics blur. Wanted by the law he bides his time for a second chance, until in a Kansas cattle town he encounters his destiny as a lawman to be remembered.

What People are Saying About This

Author, Western Historian and Assistant Editor of The Tombstone Epitaph National Edition - Erik J. Wright

“Adobe Moon is no ordinary Western. This one is special. Many fictionalized versions of Wyatt Earp’s story have been written . . . most, however, are largely ignored by the historical community . . . (but this one) has proven to be the exception to the rule. Adobe Moon is an engrossing ride with Wyatt Earp. My only criticism is the next book (in the trilogy) isn’t out quick enough.”

author of The Story of Texas Jack Vermillion - Peter Brand

“Mark Warren captures the essence of Wyatt Earp’s formative years in this beautifully crafted narrative. Adobe Moon transports the reader to the early western frontier that shaped the legendary lawman’s character and delivers a rollicking tale – entertaining and truly informative.”

author of Wyatt Earp, the Life Behind the Legend, Wiley and Sons, 1997, quoted from Wild West magazine, Oct. 2017 - Casey Tefertiller

“Warren stays close to history, adding the emotion and sensitivities that we can only wish we actually knew. This wonderfully written work makes readers feel almost as if they are sitting next to Wyatt on that brothel barge on the Illinois River, enjoying the treats of the time. Historical fiction can be a delight, and Warren delivers.”

Dr., Emeritus Professor of History, Abraham Baldwin College, author of Doc Holliday, the Life and Legend - Gary Roberts

“It is plain Mark Warren knows Wyatt Earp’s story. He has researched it long enough, deep enough, and well enough to know it in ways that few others do. Adobe Moon is an absorbing read. Understated, direct, yet somehow reflective and even philosophical, it is easy to forget that this is a novel about an American legend. And that makes it all the more satisfying in the end. In the restless ramblings of the young Wyatt Earp, Warren found clues to the man Earp would be. I will be looking forward to the continuing odyssey of the very human Wyatt Earp he is revealing. For now, I have much to ponder as a result of reading Adobe Moon.”
