Told completely in Kate Elder's voice, DOC HOLLIDAY'S WOMAN brings one of the most exciting, tumultuous and violent eras of the west to life in a brilliant novel that not only evokes the time and place, but the people whose lives changed the world.

In Doc Holliday she met her match and though she might marry others and bed others, only he held her heart.

The reckless, devilishly handsome gambler charmed and lured Kate with his recklessness. She'd break him out of jail before his wedding and watch the famous fight on the streets of Tombstone, Arizona. She'd leave him and then return when he needed her most.

From gun battles to gambler's bluffs, from one town to another and finally to find peace, Kate always looked over the next mountain, across the plain and into her heart. Her honest account of a remarkable life will linger in your mind long after finishing DOC HOLLIDAY'S WOMAN. (May, 325 pp., $19.95)
