Wyatt Earp, An American Odyssey Trilogy: Adobe Moon, Born to the Badge, Promised Land
October 22, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm$5
Join the Arizona History Museum for a study of all things Wyatt Earp and explore the photographs that chronicle his life. Author Mark Warren shares his experience researching Wyatt Earp, an endeavor which spans more than 60 years and the entire United States. His trilogy entitled Wyatt Earp, An American Odyssey incorporates many perspectives of the famous peace offi cer, the principles by which Earp lived his life—and why Earp sometimes veered from that credo.
Wyatt Earp is a complex historical figure and an even more complex element of the mythology of the Wild West: a lawman and keeper of the peace to some, and a vigilante criminal and murderer to others. Popular conceptions and the many interpretations of historians are at odds. How can readers determine for themselves who Earp was? Warren’s presentation sheds light on how to separate the facts from the legend and invites audiences to understand who exactly Earp was.
