Desert Honky Tonk - Book Review

DESERT HONKYTONK DESERT HONKYTONK by Roger A. Bruns

rating: 4 of 5 stars
I read this book in preparation for an investigation in Tombstone. I wasn't sure where to begin in my research since I am new to the area and Western history was never my forte. My background in Colonial American history.

Nevertheless, I picked up this book at the my library and was thoroughly thrilled. It is well written with a fast pace. The details are balanced and Brun dispels many of the myths surrounding not only the Bird Cage Theater but Tombstone as well.

I would very much recommend this to anyone who needs an antidote to the tour guide claptrap sold as fact in Tombstone!
