About this title
A fresh, lively retelling of the life of one of the most infamous characters of the Old West, Doc Holliday, by an imaginative, yet accurate storyteller.From the Back Cover:
Reassessing the life of one of the most infamous characters of the Old West “He was a dentist whom necessity had made a gambler; a gentleman whom disease had made a vagabond; a philosopher whom life had made a caustic wit; a long, lean blonde fellow nearly dead with consumption and at the same time the most skillful gambler and nerviest, speediest, deadliest man with a six-gun I ever knew.”
—Wyatt Earp, speaking of Doc Holliday This new biography sets the record straight on the man best known for his participation in the shootout at the O.K. Corral—a man of refinement who went West after contracting tuberculosis and became a gunfighter, gambler, and saloonkeeper. Telling the story in Doc Holliday’s own voice, D. J. Herda reveals many unexplored facets of this legendary figure’s personality. They Call Me Doc provides a riveting, well-rounded picture of both the mythological character and the real man.
