    When Colton Burpo made it through an emergency appendectomy, his family was overjoyed at his miraculous survival. What they weren’t expecting, though, was the story that emerged in the months that followed—a story as beautiful as it was extraordinary, detailing their little boy’s trip to heaven and back.

    Overall

    I have read several books on near death experiences. It seems that since Raymond Moody wrote "Life After Life" & removed the taboo of relating these experiences, you can find them everywhere. I sometimes wonder if the abundance of these accounts encourages some to seek fame or money by fabricating their story. I have never read an account that included so much orthodox doctrine as this account. It all fits too neatly into an opportunity to preach for me to find it believable. Years ago I knew a man who referred to "faith promoting rumors" when talking about tall tales passed off as true to make a point the originator believed to be true. This book has that feel.

  • The Last Gunfight: The Real Story of the Shootout at the O.K. Corral - and How It Changed the American West

    For the first time ever, the full story of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral - not only what really happened but why, and how mythology has led us to completely misinterpret the real history of the frontier. Combining cinematic storytelling with prodigious research, The Last Gunfight upends conventional wisdom about what the West was really like, who the Earps and Doc Holliday really were, and what actually happened in Tombstone on that cold day in October 1881.

    Story

    A lot of good information, but a little too much mind reading. I got a sense that Guinn was disdainful of the Earp's quest for success. He also told me much more than he would have had any way of knowing, about what people thought & felt. A little more examples of what led him to his conclusions and a little less superiority would have impressed me more. Still, for those interested in the old west &/or the Earp brothers I would recommend the book. Just read with a skeptical eye.
