KIRKUS REVIEW

Rough and tumble Americana, plenty of true Western color --and should appeal to that market. It is a story of the heyday of Tombstone, Arizona, and of the personalities through whom it became notorious. The bad men, the killers, the dealers, the gamblers, the lawyers, the amazing doctor, the freighters, the bank and train robbers, the sheriffs, the bartenders -- and the women who kept the men happy (or the reverse), the house they ran and the times they had...Then the decline of the town as the mines ran out. No Sunday School tale -- but a realistic picture of a phase of our history.
