Doc Holiday

Matt Braun



He came from the American South, a gentleman by breeding, a dentist by training, a gambler by vocation. But as Dr. John H. Holliday, a man fleeing his tragic past, drifted across the West, living among some of the roughest men on the frontier, word spread quickly he never walked away from a fight, and he never drew too late.

Now, from Dodge City to Denver and Cheyenne, from boomtown to sinkholes, "Doc" Holliday was driven by the demons of his past, a skilled gambler and a seasoned mankiller--his name was known and feared long before the O.K. Corral. The story of a man who spoke softly and carried a lightning gun, Doc Holliday is Matt Braun's extraordinary chronicle of the West's most complex and legendary figure.

    " I usually don't read western novels, but I am so glad that I read this one. I loved this book and would read it again and again. "

    " I liked this book very much. While reading it I kept picturing Val Kilmer playing the role of Holliday in the movie "Tombstone". This was nothing like Tombstone, covering the times when Holliday discovered his "consumption" and why he then went on to be a gambler. "

    " Not the true story of the famous gunfighter, but a good dramatization of his exploits from the time he was diagnosed with tuberculosis until he heads to Tombstore. "

    " "I'm your Huckleberry!" Although he probably never uttered those words, this guy is one of my favorite characters in history. This book tells about his life and times. I loved it! "

    " It's been 7 years since I read this book, but I remember loving it. "

About the Author

Matt Braun (1932–2016) was the author of forty-four novels and four nonfiction works, including Black Fox, which was made into a CBS miniseries. He specialized in fictional stories of the western frontier, which have sold over forty million copies. He won the Golden Spur Award from the Western Writers of America for The Kincaids. Born in Oklahoma, he was a fourth-generation Westerner, steeped in the tradition and lore of the frontier era. His books reflect a heritage rich with the truths of that bygone time. Raised among the Cherokee and Osage tribes, he learned their traditions and culture, and their philosophy became the foundation of his own beliefs. Like his ancestors, he has spent most of his life wandering the mountains and plains of the West. His heritage and his contribution to Western literature resulted in his appointment by the governor of Oklahoma as a territorial marshal. He also won the Owen Wister Award for lifetime achievement and the Festival of the West Cowboy Spirit Award.
