The Earp Gamble
|Author:||de la Garza, Phyllis|
|Genre:||Westerns; The Old West|
The women involved with the Earps and Doc Holliday gambled everything on their men: their lives, fortunes and happiness. From their perspective, Phyllis de la Garza has stripped away the varnish that layers the Earp myth. She exposes the reality of gamblers and killers out to control Cochise County and in so doing replaces romantized legend with real people.
In novel form, de la Garza offers us a major reappraisal of the legend of the Old West.
