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
The gunfight at the O.K. Corral with Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday remains the most filmed Wild West showdown and this surprising account explains how eight men stood practically toe to toe in a vacant lot, whipped out their guns, and blasted one another point blank, desperately yanking the triggers on their crude firearms until three were dead with two wounded. The meticulously researched book presents Tombstone as a sophisticated mining boom town featuring fine dining, superb theaters, and telephones. The gunfight didn't occur in the corral but in a nearby lot and the mayhem was an accident sparked by resisting arrest.
