|Dodge City, 1800's|
|Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp|
Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp are characters who are well- remembered from those days, because Hollywood found a market for movies based on "the wild west"- drinking, gambling, shoots-outs, dance hall girls.
I have not read books from this era, so I was interested in reading "Doc" by Mary Doria Russell.
The book really puts you into the town as you get to know many characters. The title refers to Doc Holliday, who was the focus of the book.
