For the first time ever, the full story of the gunfight at the O.K. Corral is revealed—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. With brand-new context and masterful presentation, listeners will experience the gunfight in an entirely different—and far more mesmerizing—way.

An addictive hybrid of frontier elegance and decadence, The Last Gunfight has it all—the Old West’s most famous characters, a love triangle, cowboy rustlers on the loose, renegade Apaches, and Tombstone itself, which was far different than the desolate, dusty towns of the movies.

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 by Jack | 2/20/2014

    " This was a well researched book, to the point that at the end of the book it was hard to tell who was right and wrong, and who the bad guys and who the good guys were in the famous Tombstone shootout. Forget the Hollywood depictions and the legend, this is a real story of how wild the west was. Follows the main players up to their final days. Violent, educational and depressing all at the same time. I couldnt put it down. Plus youll learn more about the shootout that didnt actually happen at the ok corral, but blocks away, small facts like that will make interesting conversation with anyone who is interested in the story but doesnt know the true facts from legend.

    " If you enjoy western history and the names Earp, Holliday, and Tombstone intrigue you, you may like this book. I found the cast of thousands and minute trivia overwhelming and dull. "

    " I enjoy a good historical read and grew up near Earp's birthplace, but one would need to be a real Western aficionado to call this a page turner. Guinn did an excellent job with historical detail. "

    " This was a very good book that puts aside the myths and attempts to deal with the historical setting in which the characters operated. "
