The Last Gunfight: The Real Story of the Shootout at the O.K. Corral---And How It Changed the American West

The Last Gunfight: The Real Story of the Shootout at the O.K. Corral---And How It Changed the American West Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For the first time ever, the full story of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral—not only what really happened but why, and how mythology has led us to completely misinterpret the real history of the frontier—by the bestselling author of Go Down Together.

Combining cinematic storytelling with prodigious research, The Last Gunfight upends conventional wisdom about what the West was really like, who the Earps and Doc Holliday really were, and what actually happened in Tombstone on that cold day in October 1881. With brand-new context and masterful presentation, listeners will experience the gunfight in an entirely different—and far more mesmerizing—way.

An addictive hybrid of frontier elegance and decadence, The Last Gunfight has it all—the Old West's most famous characters, a love triangle, cowboy rustlers on the loose, renegade Apaches, and Tombstone itself, far different than the desolate, dusty towns of the movies.

Synopsis:

Bestselling author Jeff Guinn presents for the first time the full story of the gunfight at Tombstone's O.K. Corral, one of the Old West's most famous battles
