"He was a study in contrasts; the legendary gunslinger who made his living as a dentist; the emaciated consumptive whose very name struck fear in the hearts of his enemies; the degenerate gambler and alcoholic whose fierce loyalty to his friends compelled him, more than once, to risk his own life; the sidekick whose near-mythic status has come to rival that of the West's greatest heroes... Doc Holliday remains an enigma, a legend in the moral contradictions of life on the late-nineteenth-century frontier" (dust jacket).
