Wyatt Earp

Wyatt_Earp.jpg

History for the most part has depicted Wyatt Earp, the hero of the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral in Tombstone, Arizona as a legendary lawman, a beacon of justice in the American West. But in, “Wyatt Earp: A Vigilante Life,” author Andrew C. Isenberg paints a much more complex portrait of Earp, who seemed to alternate between wearing a badge and impulsive law-breaking – as a thief, brothel bouncer, gambler and con man.
