    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

    After setting the time and period issues, Mr. Guinn tells a fascinating tale of how despite the great distances, hard living conditions, and personal ambitions of the participants, death and destruction could not be avoided. Justice has nothing to do with the OK Corral. The tale brings such realism to mind that you feel like you have to kick of the dust from your boots when you are done and get a shot of whiskey. In the final analysis, this was not a story about good vs. bad, lies vs. truths, or laws vs. the lawless. It is a solid story about who could shoot first to kill and and then live to justify it.
