  • 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

    Great deal of information on the shootout. The book gives details that dispels the numerous myths surrounding the showdown. However, I found the narrator distracting.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Story

    There were times that I was laughing OUT LOUD. I'm memorized at Fey's amazing wit. Just my kind of humor. I'm close to the same age so I could relate. I'd have to say, I enjoyed the portion of the book of her growing up the most.

    There could be no other narrator. The performance was outstanding.

    James A. Garfield may have been the most extraordinary man ever elected president. Born into abject poverty, he rose to become a wunderkind scholar, a Civil War hero, and a renowned and admired reformist congressman. Nominated for president against his will, he engaged in a fierce battle with the corrupt political establishment. But four months after his inauguration, a deranged office seeker tracked Garfield down and shot him in the back. But the shot didn’t kill Garfield. The drama of what hap­pened subsequently is a powerful story of a nation in tur­moil.

    Melinda says: "Marvelous, Magnificent, Millard"
    "Great book with interesting details."

    Story

    Here's a president people generally don't know much about and his assassin, who most people know nothing about. I really feel like I learned so much about James Garfield, Charles J. Guiteau, and Alexander Graham Bell. Not only do you hear about the details of the events leading up to Guiteau shooting Garfield, but you get a clear vision of the motivations of Guiteau, Bell and Garfield. The descent of Garfield's health after the shooting, due to gross mistakes by Garfield's doctors, continues to amplify sympathy for Garfield.

    If you find a book well narrarated so much more enjoyable, this is a huge plus for this audio book. Paul Michael can consistently narrate the characters, with accents, different pitches and even women's dialogues.

    If you love history, especially presidential history, I highly recommend this book.
