It isn’t a secret and this is not a confession. But I really enjoy Disney’s Adventures from Frontier Land. Whether the protagonist is the Scarecrow of Romney Marsh, the Swamp Fox, Elfego Baca, Zorro, or Texas John Slaughter, I like a story about a bold hero who takes on injustice. So, I sorta set myself up to really really enjoy The Picture Story of Wyatt Earp.

Written in the 1950s, this book tells the story of Wyatt Earp, gunman and lawman, and the trail of justice he forged in the wild west. Set off in illustrations of black, cream, and rust, Wyatt’s exploits – from his arrest of the bully, Ben Thompson, to the famous shootout at the O.K. Corral – are depicted in a blaze of glory.

Conclusion. Wonderful.
