Unsolicited opinion on Gatto's previous bio of Curly Bill
Mon May 6, 2019 20:41

Of the many books about Cochise County characters that have gone out of print since I started studying that corner of Arizona, Curly Bill by Gatto is the one I have most wanted to see reprinted, mainly thinking what folks who started researching this subject since his volume became hard to find. For such a slim little book, I go back to it time and time again to refresh my memory the important events in the cowboy saga and their chronology. To find out that a new updated version is coming out soon, the day after I find out about the new Earp anthology by Young, Robets and Tefertiller, while I am waiting impatiently for Lynn Bailey's and Robert Buckley's new work on the further adventure of the Clantons and the Graham brothers, could only be made better by word that a certain poster on this board would soon be publishing an article, a pamphlet or a book on Morgan Earp and/or James Earp.

            Wow, another Earp book in the works. Great to hear. Maybe this many books coming out in such a short period of time will embarrass any researcher out there sitting on a pile of research materials... more

              And whoever could you possibly be speaking about? lol! David PS - James Earp actually figures prominently in our book too, and #399 has been a big help. He already has a credit (or two) listed in the ... more
