Wyatt Earp - Tombstone


The McLaurys in Tombstone, Arizona: An O.K. Corral Obituary

by Paul Johnson. University of North Texas Press, 2012. Dust jacket. $29.95

On a chilly October afternoon in 1881, two brothers named Tom and Frank McLaury were gunned down on the streets of Tombstone, Arizona, by the Earp brothers and Doc Holliday. The deadly event became known as the gunfight at the O.K. Corral, and in a quirk of fate, the brothers’ names became well-known, but only as bad men and outlaws. Did they deserve that reputation?  The McLaurys in Tombstone, Arizona: An O.K. Corral Obituary explores this question, revealing details of their family background and the context of their lives on the frontier.

Military in the West


Dragoons in Apacheland: Conquest and Resistance Southern New Mexico, 1846 - 1861.

By William S. Kiser. University of Oklahoma Press, March 2013. Dust jacket. $29.95

In the fifteen years prior to the American Civil War, the U.S. Army established a presence in southern New Mexico, the homeland of Mescalero, Mimbres, and Mogollon bands of the Apache Indians. From the army’s perspective, the Apaches presented an obstacle to be overcome in making the region—newly acquired in the Mexican-American War—safe for Anglo settlers. In Dragoons in Apacheland, William S. Kiser recounts the conflicts that ensued and examines how both Apache warriors and American troops shaped the future of the Southwest Borderlands.
