The book recounts the true story of the legendary town of Dodge City, Kansas, known as the most violent and turbulent town in the West. The Houston Press calls the book, “Thorough, compelling and entertaining...Clavin sprinkles in fascinating tidbits about life and culture in the Old West...In Dodge City, Clavin vividly re-creates a time, a town and an era that it seems incomprehensible occurred less than 150 years ago. In it, he provides a reality check to the countless books, TV shows and movies about the Old West.”
