Description: Tombstone, Arizona, was the home of quick-triggered gentry -- Wyatt, Virgil, and Morgan Earp, Doc Holliday, Buckskin Frank Leslie, and the rest -- who made it "the toughest town in the West". It was the site of the most famous gunfight in western history, the quarrel in the O.K. Corral, an event thoroughly covered by the town's newspaper, the Tombstone Epitaph. The news stories collected in this book are on-the-spot accounts and running news bulletins (including verbatim testimony) of the trial that followed. But Tombstone's Epitaph is also the history of a frontier town as seen through the eyes of its reporters. Editor John Clum (a former Indian agent) printed the truth as he saw it, mincing neither words nor opinions. His stories of "sporting men" such as Johnny-Behind-the-Deuce and "sporting women" such as Diamond Annie were printed alongside stories of mining enterprises, gambling, fires, stagecoach robberies, church socials and family picnics, births, weddings, and deaths. This reprint of the fourth edition (with additional news stories) also includes a new foreword by Wyatt Earp biographer Casey Tefertiller.
