Spirits of the Old West, Vol 2, by Kathryn Kaye

This book focuses on ghostly sightings and other unworldly happenings in the West's most famous town - Tombstone, AZ, and has short bios of some of the main characters - The Earp Brothers, Doc Halliday, Ed Schifflein. Most of you have read enough about Tombstone, the Earps, and Doc Halliday, but I found the book interesting having visited Tombstone several times and seen the old buildings and corral mentioned in the book.The author, Kathryn Kaye, did some research to back up what she writes about and includes the references at the end so you can look them up and read them for yourself, if so incliined.

I recommend it for readers who are not familiar with the subject matter and give it four stars. There are some misspelled words and the context at times is not exactly correct, but it was a fun book.

  1. I guess if any place was haunted it ought to be Tombstone.

    1. It's a better place than most with all the killings, etc., that went on there.

    1. I get tired of reading the same old stuff. But new characters of the area and era would be all right.

  3. I feel until quite recently the story wasn't told accurately. The real story is so much more fascinating.

    1. Yep, the fiction stories were off and the non-fiction may have been too much edited to increase sales instead of portraying the whole truth.
