Description
In the beginning, life was easy for John Henry "Doc" Holliday in his beautiful home state of Georgia--a wonderful place to be a child and dream. But Holliday's dreams would soon be trampled, beginning with the Civil War and General Sherman's horrendous march through Georgia. Tragedy seems to befall Holliday again and again, as his mother dies of tuberculosis and he is diagnosed with the same disease. Estranged from the love of his life, Holliday decides to move west. From this point on, life would be but another train, another turn, another turn of the card, and hopefully another jackpot. Gambling soon becomes his only profession and a gun his only means of protection. While his reputation as a gambler and marksman grows, Holliday befriends the famous Wyatt Earp. Their exploits would become the stuff of legend, and their friendship would remain steadfast until Holliday's early demise. "The Last Gamble of Doc Holliday" vividly brings to life the fascinating story of one of the Wild West's tragic heroes.
