Synopsis: The first full length biography of Curly Bill Brocius.
Following his shooting of Tombstone City Marshal Fred White in late October 1880, William Brocius, alias Curly Bill, became an infamous man in Arizona. Curly Bill was considered Arizona's Most Famous Outlaw for the next year and a half. Wyatt Earp claimed that he killed the notorious cowboy at a spring in the Whetstone Mountains on March 24, 1882. Contemporary sources, however, claimed that Curly Bill was not in Arizona at the time. The cowboy's supposed death was hot debated at the time and remains a controversial topic today.
About the Author: Steve Gatto has been researching Tombstone history and the characters that made the town famous for over fifteen years. Gatto is the author of "The Real Wyatt Earp" (2000) and "Johnny Ringo" (2002).
