Walter Noble Burns (1872–1932) served with the First Kentucky Infantry during the Spanish-American War and covered General John J. Pershing’s pursuit of Pancho Villa in Mexico as a correspondent for the Chicago Tribune. However history-making these forays may seem, they were only the beginning. Through careful analysis of The Saga of Billy the Kid (1926), Tombstone: An Iliad of the Southwest (1927), and The Robin Hood of Eldorado: The Saga of Joaquín Murrieta (1932) and their reception, Dworkin shows how Burns used his journalistic training to introduce the history of the American West to his era’s general readership.

I bought this book on a whim. I got an urge to do some research on the OK corral shootout, and this book has a snazzy cover and was well reviewed.

I wanted a scholarly type thing, that went into details about the personailties and dynamics of that event. I was delightfully surprized that style of this book is more like the pulp fiction
stories popular when it was first publish.

The period is covers in detail is sometime shortly after the civil war to the begining of the 1900's. It made me pause and reflect on the conditions of that time, and how a generation that survived our countrys bloodiest and most deadly war adjusted to civilian life. While PTSD has only recently been recongized, I suspect its effects where influencial in the lawlessness and genocide this period is known for.

Its not all about Wyatt Earp and Ike Clanton, although they are there, and does endorse this work, but the history of the entire region. It tell hows Tombstone was founded, the men who ran it, and lastly its decline into tourism. Its a story of shoot outs and desperados, boom towns and dance halls, lost treasure and broken dreams.

Sorry, I got caught up in it there...its really entertaining.

The only real issue I have is that the information is not referanced, so its hard to tell fact from fiction. The sources are readily, from newspaper accounts, court records and first person interviews, but its just not always clearly stated where the facts end and the speculation begins.

So yes, its a fun and informative. It kept my interest and I learned a little. Perfect for your commute on the bus or a day at the beach.

Great old book. Very informative and presents details, events and names of people that modern writers have overlooked or choose not to include in there condenced versions of the events that took place in Tombstone. Burns does invent a few details but if you have a good working knowledge of the Earp boys and Tombstone you will have no trouble spoting these few inacurate statements. I think everyone who is interested in the Tombstone legend should read this book!

Kind of a Tombstone buff here. I LOVE this book! It helped me a ton prior to my last trip.

I felt this was an inclusive history of the city of Tombstone regardless of the reviews of "nay-sayers". My mother, born in 1909, spent her younger years growing up in Bisbee, finally passing away at age 101 in 2010 at the family home in San Jose, CA.
Some of the facts were wrong, but we learned more since this was written. Still. it was a good read.
