Dragging Wyatt Earp; a personal history of Dodge City.

Rebein, Robert.

Swallow Press


225 pages



Rebein (creative writing, Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis) is part of a large family that has farmed and ranched in Dodge City, Kansas, for 80 years. In this bittersweet, place-based memoir, he explores legendary white, Native, and Hispanic figures of Old West Dodge City and looks at the struggles of ordinary people in the reality of the New West. He charts his journey to become a writer and his return to Dodge City after college, weaving facts about the city's history with reminiscences of cruising with his brothers on Wyatt Earp Boulevard. The book includes b&w personal photos.
