Editorial Reviews

Review

“Clavin’s out to dispel the myths…[interjecting] some wry commentary into his breezy narrative style…It’s all through fascinating lore. And would you believe that the gunfight at the OK Corral didn’t even take place at the OK Corral?” ―NPR

“With a former newsman’s nose for the truth, Clavin has sifted the facts, myths, and lies to produce what might be as accurate an account as we will ever get of the old West’s most famous feud.” ―
Associated Press

“Clavin shows that there is more to the story of Tombstone than the Earps and the well-known gunfight. Readers who enjoyed the first two books in this popular history trilogy will look forward to this excellent and fitting conclusion.’” ―
Library Journal

"Rootin'-tootin' history....Updating the old notion that the Earp myth is the American Iliad, the author is at his best when he delineates those fraught spasms of violence. Buffs of the Old West will enjoy Clavin's careful research and vivid writing." ―
Kirkus Reviews

"Clavin briskly sketches dozens of historical figures and gamely interrogates primary and secondary sources to separate fact from fiction. This animated account entertains." ―Publishers Weekly

"In “Tombstone: The Earp Brothers, Doc Holliday, and the Vendetta Ride from Hell,” [Clavin] does a yeoman’s job of combining original research with a knack for page-turning narrative that gives readers an exciting tour of the celebrated gunfight at the O.K. Corral." ―
Christian Science Monitor

"Commemorated in hundreds of books, songs, movies and television shows, the gunfight [at the OK Corral] has often been portrayed as the consummate battle between order and chaos, virtue and vice. But as Clavin reminds us in [his] recent book on the infamous clash, the men behind the badges were hardly exemplars of righteousness. Trot[s] along at a brisk pace." ―
Wall Street Journal

"Clavin...is steadfast in researching and describing the imperfections as well as the virtues of Earp’s character and pursues the most likely version of the event with the doggedness of Earp’s vengeance posse." ―
Lincoln Journal Star

"
Tombstone is written in a distinctly American voice." ―T.J. Stiles, The New York Times
