This book reveals the sophisticated atmosphere unrivaled west of New Orleans and outside San Francisco during the late 1880s. Monahans detailed history of the people, restaurants, and hotels describes life in Tombstone, where six-shooters were on most mens hips, and miner picks were a common sight.

Restaurants varied from simple fare, to exotic creations, and included trendy French cooking, along with fresh oysters. Monahan painstakingly cataloged the essence of how the West Was Won by presenting facts about real people and places that shaped the most famous town in Arizona. Included are 140 recipes from the era with actual photos.
