Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Supported by strong ratings and a rich history, The Real Deadwood provides background and historical accuracy for the figures depicted on the hit HBO series, and takes a broader look at the times that spawned them. Covering law and order, politics, journalism, and early medicine, and examining some "historical guest stars" who may play a factor in future Deadwood episodes (Teddy Roosevelt was an acquaintance of series protagonist Seth Bullock and made several visits to the lawless town; Bullock turned away Wyatt Earp when he offered his services as a lawman)-The Real Deadwood will allow readers to traverse the unpaved streets of an outlaw town without ever getting their boots dirty.

Synopsis:

A fascinating and accessible loot at the true history behind the people and places that populate HBO's popular hit series "Deadwood"

This book was so poorly edited that it was almost painful to read. Many interesting anecdotes were clumsily tied in to a TV series called "Deadwood" (which I'd never heard of until I read this book).
