MARK WARREN. Promised Land, Wyatt Earp: An American Odyssey (Book 3). Five Star Publishing. Hardcover, 332 pages, $25.95, gale.cengage.com/fivestar

Drawn to the silver boom in Tombstone, Arizona Territory, Wyatt Earp and his brothers start anew with aspirations to strike it big in business. Fate seems to have other plans for Wyatt, as he reverts to the foot-soldier status of a hard-nosed enforcer of the law. Enemy lines are drawn between the Earps and the cow-boy rustlers, finally culminating in the famed gunfight near the O.K. Corral. When the Earps prevail in this face-to-face battle, the cow-boys resort to midnight back-shooting, killing one Earp and maiming another. When the courts cannot adjudicate over perjuring outlaws, Wyatt Earp takes the law into his own hands and dispenses a personal justice that will elevate his name into American legend.
