Volume Two very closely follows the format established in Volume One of Tombstone By Tombstone: Here Lies the Old West, with one major exception. Volume One had 75 stories within just about the same number of pages as Volume Two while this volume only contains 46. So the stories are more in-depth, and I do believe more interesting. Once again we have some of the famous, infamous and some that certainly are not household names. There are stories on two of Wyatt Earp's brothers, but not on Wyatt. He does get frequent mention as there is a story about a fellow who rode with him and a fellow who did not. The ladies get good coverage again this time. There are five women of the Old West and only one of them could be considered a "Lady of the Evening," and after she quit running with the Wild Bunch she seems to have given up that life. There is a story of a western Indian who was sent east and an eastern Indian who was sent west. And there is a story about the boy that Geronimo missed when he attacked and destroyed the other members of his family. And because he missed, the boy celebrated his 107th birthday. There is a story about one very bad Indian outlaw and one Indian that rode with Geronimo and wrote his own autobiography. Did you know there was a fellow that fought the Yankees in the War of Northern Aggression and after the war was over received a Medal of Honor fighting with the US Army? Were you aware that one Medal of Honor recipient shot and killed another MOH recipient? Everyone knows who James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok is, but other than Old West buffs, how many know the name Davis Tutt? Some may be surprised to learn that the Gunfight Close to the OK Corral was not the bloodiest in Arizona history and the bloodiest didn't happen until after the beginning of WWI, and that was still the Wild West here in Arizona. There are four of the meanest killers that ever roamed the southwest and some of the best lawmen ever assigned to catch them. Blacks, whites, Indians, Mexicans, outlaws, in-laws, ladies and whores, they are all covered here and everybody will find something that they did not know before reading these stories.
