Mythical American West

by BruceHH on Aug 19, 2011

Legends and myths are similar. There may be a bit of truth in them. The book describes Tombstone and its culture as it was in the late 1800s. The Earp brothers, especially Wyatt, reached mythical proportions with movies and TV but the facts tell a different story. For one, the gunfight did not occur at the O.K. Corral. A minor detail that one can ascribe to poetic license. Rather than give a lot of the details about the Earps, Tombstone, and other characters involved I'll suggest you read the book. Suffice it to say, there wasn't much difference between the Earps and the 'cowboys' that made up much of Cochise County.
