Here is a magnificent human drama based on the memories of one who lived it, filled with facts history books omitted. Orphaned at an early age, Allie and her brothers and sisters were parceled out to foster families. She eventually moved in with her married sister, who was operating a boarding house. It was there that Allie met Virgil Earp who was working for a stage line. They were married without benefit of clergy and so began a life of itinerant wandering where all roads seeming to lead to Tombstone. In this vivid account, all the political intrigue and moral ambiguities of that time and place are brought dramatically to life, including the stark and brutal events of lawlessness and law enforcement that culminated at the OK Corral.
