Summary:

Doc Holiday
Matt Braun

He came from the American South, a gentleman by breeding, a dentist by training, a gambler by vocation. But as Dr. John H. Holliday, a man fleeing his tragic past, drifted across the West, living among some of the roughest men on the frontier, word spread quickly he never walked away from a fight, and he never drew too late.
Now, from Dodge City to Denver and Cheyenne, from boomtown to sinkholes, 'Doc' Holliday was driven by the demons of his past, a skilled gambler and a seasoned mankiller--his name was known and feared long before the O.K. Corral. The story of a man who spoke softly and carried a lightning gun, Doc Holliday is Matt Braun's extraordinary chronicle of the West's most complex and legendary figure.

    This book was a disappointment maybe because it was abridged, since I usually like Matt Braun's books. To have a biography about "Doc" Holiday and not mention the gunfight at the O.K. Corral or "Doc's" first meeting with Wyatt Earp is not good in my opinion. Way too much about his love/hate relationship with "Big Nosed" Kate and not enough about his life after Tombstone. Stay away from this one!!
