Get Outta' Dodge... or Embrace the Gunsmoke?

(Photo by J. Schafer)

There are a lot of legends about the Old West. Many of them involve Kansas towns, especially Dodge City. Commentator Rex Buchanan recently read a new book about the famous cowtown (and there are many!). And that got him thinking about the ongoing shootout in Dodge, the constant battle between fact and fiction.

Commentator Rex Buchanan is a writer, traveler and director emeritus of the Kansas Geological Survey. He lives in Lawrence. He was reviewing the book Dodge City, by Tom Clavin.

Want another perspective? Here's the Kirkus review of Tom Clavin's book, Dodge City.
