"Dodge City: Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, and the Wickedest Town in the American West"

Clavin-Dodge-City-Book.jpg
Aired on Wednesday, February 28th.

Our guest is Tom Clavin, the popular historian whose latest book, "Dodge City: Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, and the Wickedest Town in the American West," is just out in paperback. As was noted of this book by the Houston Press: "Thorough, compelling, and entertaining.... Clavin sprinkles in fascinating tidbits about life and culture in the Old West.... In 'Dodge City,' Clavin vividly re-creates a time, a town, and an era that it seems incomprehensible occurred less than 150 years ago. In [this book], he provides a reality check to the countless books, TV shows, and movies about the Old West." Please note that Mr. Clavin will be reading from this book (and signing copies of it) on Saturday the 3rd at the Circle Cinema, beginning at 2pm.
