Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"The Earp Papers delivers, for the first time, a group biography of all the fathers and sons, uncles and nephews who made up this most famous of western clans: the Earps. In a diverse assemblage of primary sources — everything from legal documents to personal correspondence and veterans' records — spiced with contemporary newspaper and magazine articles, Chaput's exhaustive research digs deeply into the truth behind the Earp legacy as the most colorful family in the West." Dr. Janet R. Fireman, Curator of History, Natural History Museum, Los Angeles

Review:

"Don Chaput of the Los Angeles County Museum for 20 years has been engaged in diligent research on the Earp brothers, in particular, Virgil, the main peace officer of that family. Chaput has shown great understanding of the complex issues in the history of Tombstone and Prescott, my main areas of interest." Carl Chafin, Editor of The Diaries of George W Parsons and chronicler of the history of Tombstone
