The gunfight at the OK Corral reinforced the popular image of the Wild West and has fuelled countless arguments over the characters, motives and actions of those involved. This work presents an objective narrative of the celebrated gunfight, and of the bitter, bloody events that followed.
"And Die in the West" presents the first fully detailed, objective narrative of the celebrated gunfight, of the tensions leading up to it, and of the bitter, bloody events that followed. Paula Mitchell Marks places the events surrouding the gunfight against a larger backdrop of a booming tombstone and the fluid, frontier enviroment of greed, factions and violence. In the process, Marks stips away many of the myths associated with the famous gunfight and of the West in general.
