In the 1880s a vast western frontier was opening up in America for the brave men and women willing to claim it. Wyatt Earp and his brothers were the essence of that pioneer courage, heading out to make their fortunes in a young and lawless land. But somewhere, life changed them -- their principles and their desires became different. And Wyatt Earp, a lawman who'd earned respect for thousands of miles, became a man whose name inspired fear and hatred.
Was he a hero or a man obsessed with vengeance? Did Wyatt Earp make the West safe for those to follow -- or was he carrying out his own brand of frontier vendetta justice?
His story has become a legend -- but behind the long shadow was a man ... a man whose life paralleled the changes of a nation and the end of a way of life. Within the years of Wyatt Earp's existence, the American West was born, flourished, struggled -- and became part of a nation. And a boy became an unforgettable kind of man.
