The Last Gunfight : The Real Story of the Shootout at the O.K. Corral - And How It Changed the American West Paperback / softback
by Jeff Guinn
Sheriffs and outlaws, cattle rustlers, frontier prostitutes, renegade Apaches - this is the Wild West as it really was. On the afternoon of 26 October 1881, in a vacant lot in Tombstone, Arizona, a confrontation between eight armed men erupted into a deadly shootout.
The gunfight at the O.K. Corral shaped how future generations came to view the Old West, and Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday and the Clantons became the stuff of legends.
But the truth is even better. Drawing on new material from private collections - including diaries, letters and Wyatt Earp's own hand-drawn sketch of the shootout's conclusion - and painstaking research, The Last Gunfight is entertaining, illuminating and the definitive work on the Wild West's greatest shootout.
