Title

Wyatt Earp, Frontier Marshall

Description

Journalist Lake (1889-1964) interviewed the laconic Earp during his last days and produced this epic biography that, along with movies and a 1950s television series, transformed the relatively unknown frontier lawman into a western icon. Despite its numerous historical flaws, it still makes for a rousing read and deserves credit for launching a frenzied interest in the Earp brothers and the mythic Old West that continues unabated today. --Bruce J. Dinges.
