by Gary L Roberts

Publication: John Wiley & Sons, Inc, 2006, Hoboken

First edition. 8vo. Boards, xi [1], 528 pp., frontis., acknowledgments, prologue, illustrated, plates, portraits, epilogue, notes, index. Drawing on more than twenty years of research, the author takes aim at the most complex, perplexing, and paradoxical gunfighter of the Old West. In a promotional dust jacket blurb, Howard R. Lamar says, "Splendid .... not only the most readable yet definitive study of Holliday yet published, it is one of the best biographies of nineteenth-century Western 'good-bad-men' to appear in the last twenty years. It was so vivid and gripping that I read it twice." As new in dust jacket.
