Written in the rich epic vein of 'Lonesome Dove', 'Tombstone', Open Range' and 'Wyatt Earp', this vast new Western novel seems hand-forged right out of the glowing gun metal and billowing blue gun smoke of close quarters combat. Finally these unwritten chapters of one of the Wild West's greatest real life heroes flash dangerously to life across the open pages of 'Fighting for Air - the Unknown Adventures of Young Doc Holliday', as if illuminated by gunfire, not merely your new Kindle's glowing light.
Doc Holliday's intrepid young life was filled with his own endless tales of impossible and daring adventures. His gallant youth nothing less than a series of swaggering, witty conflicts as he consciously ran headlong into danger with countless deadly exploits long before he ever grew up and met that famously somber young Deputy Marshal named Earp or arrived in a bustling little silver town called Tombstone.
In fact, Young Doc Holliday had only just reached the tender young age of twenty-one, after a tragic but escapade filled Civil War childhood, when his doctors in Atlanta gave the handsome young man his final death sentence. "Only six months left to live, son," they grimly assured him. "Consumption."
But this steely young gentleman from the deep South didn't simply surrender to this horrible curse that Fate had hurled at him so sadistically, or curl-up into a ball to die.
He stood up on his hind legs, brushed himself off and disappeared into the Wild West like a ghost...somehow destined to become 'Doc Holliday' instead.
And once far out West, hopelessly lost and wandering all alone in the endless sun scorched madness of the Badlands, he found himself entirely cut off, excommunicated from everything and everyone he had ever loved. Young Doc was now truly 'Fighting for Air', in every possible way, as each precious second ticked slowly by and he struggled just to merely stay alive long enough to catch his dwindling breath on the other side of the next bloody sundown.
So how in the world did the very proper Doctor John Henry Holliday D.D.S. of Griffin, Georgia ever become the dashingly brave Doc Holliday of Western Legend?
How could this sickly young dentist, with all of his formal education and gentlemanly upbringing, transform himself so radically into the avenging anti-hero who took on the meanest bad men the Wild West had to offer?
And why would valiant Wyatt Earp, of all people, trust this brash, drunken gambler and notoriously deadly young gunslinger so implicitly with defending his own noble young life?
All of these questions are finally answered in 'Fighting for Air - the Unknown Adventures of Young Doc Holliday' by Jack Kincade.
'Fighting for Air...' is a brand new epic Western serial spanning the most exciting, courageous years of Young Doc Holliday's formative life, following his dangerous ascent from early Southern Civil War childhood into the making of his own glorious Western Legend. It's a huge, stirring American fable filled with young love and unexpected loss; perfect friendship and unquestionable honor, all set amid the swirling gun smoke of his heroic and blood stained youth.
This is how the boy became the man.
This is how that young man became the Legend.
And some say it all happened just like this.
