Wild West

CHRISTIE’S GUNFIGHT

so naturally the thoughts of editors and longtime readers alike turn to the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral. For those who’ve had their fill of Wyatt Earp, his brothers, Doc Holliday and that Oct. 26, 1881, shootout in a vacant lot (not actually at the corral) in Tombstone, Arizona Territory, please forgive us. Take heart in the fact that our cover story looks at 10 notable Western gunfights that the O.K. Corral. That said, don’t expect us to apologize for last October’s feature “Finding Wyatt” (by Casey Tefertiller with Bob Cash), which mostly finds our man Earp in Tombstone. The Wild West History Association, we are proud to say, has since recognized that article with a Six-Shooter Award (see Roundup, P. 11).
