What a wonderful book! This is the story of John Henry “Doc” Holliday. The “characters” made famous by the Gunfight at the OK Corral had always been rather one-dimensional to me, however Doria Russell’s writing has brought them to life. This story is both heart-warming and heart-breaking. It’s so touching to see Doc’s love of life, friendships and caring attitude coupled with his wit and southern charm. Doria Russell’s characters are all well developed and her beautiful style of writing and language had me laughing at times and crying at others. I’m left bereft—and thrilled to learn she’s working on follow up book which features the Earps—due out in 2015.
