Wyatt Earp: Real vs. Reel   

Earp is one of the most memorable of Old West figures. More than 20 films have been made about him plus a popular TV series. But he wasn't like what the movies claimed...and he didn't think of himself as a lawman either. Roger Peterson interviewed three people who personally knew Earp. His work has been cited in Earp's biography and that of his third wife Josie, and American History magazine published Peterson's cover story on Earp's life. The Wild West History Association Journal gave the 2019 "Best Non-Fiction Article Award" to Peterson for his story "Wyatt Earp: Boomtown Sport."
