"The case against the Earps, with its dueling narratives of brutality and justification, played out themes of betrayal, revenge, and even adultery. Attorney Thomas Fitch, one of the era's finest advocates, ultimately managed - against considerable odds - to save Wyatt Earp from the gallows. But the case could easily have ended in a conviction, and Earp would have been hanged or imprisoned, not celebrated as an American icon" (dust jacket).
