Summary
He was a study in contrasts: the legendary gunslinger who made his living as a dentist; the emaciated consumptive whose very name struck fear in the hearts of his enemies; the degenerate gambler and alcoholic whose fierce loyalty to his friends compelled him, more than once, to risk his own life; the sidekick whose near-mythic status has come to rival that of the West's greatest heroes. More than 100 years after he died of tuberculosis at the age of thirty-six, Doc Holliday remains an enigma, a legend in the shadows, a brooding metaphor for the moral contradictions of life on the late nineteenth-century frontier
Summary
Examines the life of legendary gunslinger Doc Holliday, a dentist from the South believed to have gone west because of tuberculosis, who went on to become a gambler and one of the most feared gunfighters of his time
