This novel of the life of Mary Katherine Haroney, aka “Big Nose Kate”, Doc Holliday’s girlfriend, is based on historical research, letters, and what may have likely happened in those moments and hours in between what we know and the passions that truly make up a life, from the dawn of the West to the violent lawlessness that preceded the end of an era.
