What turned Atlanta professional man John Henry “Doc” Holiday into a stone cold killer? What was Doc’s weapon of choice? Who really killed Pat Garrett? Did Wyatt Earp ever track down his brother Virgil’s killer? What minister of the gospel became the west’s deadliest paid killer? Who was the wildest of Butch Cassidy’s “Wild Bunch”? What catastrophe almost wiped out the cattle business in 1888? What were the west’s greatest gold strikes and how were they discovered? Does the ghost of pioneer Brit Bailey still stalk the prairie near Old Brazoria? Author Murphy answers these intriguing questions and many other in this book aptly titled “Ghosts, Gold Diggers and Gun Slingers”, which is the product of a lifetime of research and several years of writing and rewriting.
