“This is the west, sir. When the legend becomes fact, print the legend.” For no man does this famous line from The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance apply more accurately than it does to Johnny Ringo. He is a man whose true story has been gravely misunderstood. He has been portrayed in movies as the heroic outlaw who was fast with a gun, and struck fear in the hearts of those who challenged his skill. To the early twentieth century writers, he was the anti-Earp gunman who led the cow-boy faction of southern Arizona. But now, using primary sources, Cold West Detective Kevin Hogge takes the reader into the world of Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Bat Masterson, and the Shootout at the OK Corral to consider Johnny Ringo, a man who led a tragic life, and died a mysterious death committed by a man no one ever suspected.
