    That's a pretty cool read. Always enjoyed learning about the lives of the old west gunman.

    Probably the best book on Doc is "Doc Holiday, THE LIFE AND LEGEND" by Gary L. Roberts. Fascinating Historical research done by this Author. He uses many of the newspaper articles of the time, and interviews of the time to show the Real Doc, from Birth to death. And with all the players of the day. Mr. Roberts really separates fact from fiction. Doc, was no great marksman, and rarely carried a gun especially in Tombstone. What Doc did have was a sever case of Anger Management. In one case of one his gunfights, he had to borrow a gun from the Bartender before commencing on his task of killing. Read the book, much more entertaining than any of the movies, which by the way, I love all of them. Also visited Tombstone when I was a young boy and will never forget. By the way, the real OK Corral fight scene was actually a narrow alley. This History channel did a great remake of the actual gun fight with firearm experts and forensics and ballistics.

    Read the reviews and peek inside book below.
