Overview

He came from the American South, a gentleman by breeding, a dentist by training, a gambler by vocation. But as Dr. John H. Holliday, a man fleeing his tragic past, drifted across the West, living among some of the roughest men on the frontier, word spread quickly he never walked away from a fight, and he never drew too late.

Now, from Dodge City to Denver and Cheyenne, from boomtown to sinkholes, "Doc" Holliday was driven by the demons of his past, a skilled gambler and a seasoned mankiller--his name was known and feared long before the O.K. Corral. The story of a man who spoke softly and carried a lightning gun, this is Matt Braun's extraordinary chronicle of the West's most complex and legendary figure.

This is an extremely fun and quick read. It paints a picture of a man forced to live by his wits in the untamed west, rather than live the life a southern gentleman with the woman he loves. A great book that allows you to get lost in the legend of the Old West!

Matt Braun excels in this novel. The fictional biography feels real and implements many elements of truth(not without elaboration I imagine). Exciting and fast paced, you grow to really admire and possibly even idolize Doc Holliday as the story progresses. It would make for one hell of a western movie.
