Audio Journeys: The Wild West Town of Deadwood, South Dakota

Audio Journeys by Travel Radio International explores one of the wildest towns in the West. At the end of a box canyon, near precious metal deposits, Deadwood lured such famous Old West characters as Wild Bill Hickok and Calamity Jane. Deadwood might have been torn down and forgotten, except that it also holds the distinction of being the town where an angry assailant killed Wild Bill Hickok while he was on his honeymoon.

Audible Editor Reviews

Patricia L. Lawrence goes on a visit to Deadwood, one of the most infamous Old West towns in history. Most likely named after the large amounts of deadwood on the surrounding hillside, Deadwood was also the setting of the murder of Wild Bill Hickok, who was on his honeymoon at the time. Wild Bill was shot in the back while holding a hand of cards that would later be known as Dead Man's Hand. Lawrence visits the Deadwood Gulch Wax Museum and then joins a historic reenactment of Hickok's shooting and manages a brief interview with his murderer, Jack McCall. This charming travelogue provides listeners with a host of interesting facts about this Wild West town.
