"The Clantons of Tombstone" by Ben Traywick
When “Old Man” Clanton moved his family west, to survive it was necessary for him to be a fighter and lone wolf. Ben Traywick has captured the history of this adventurous and interesting family as it really happened. And, many times, the truth is stranger than fiction.
It provides much documented information about Tombstone’s second most famous family, including plenty of facts about Clantons before and after the turbulent Tombstone years.
