Tombstone was one of the last great boomtowns of the Old West--a small city that grew up overnight and has a larger-than-life presence in the mythology of the frontier. In its heyday it was full of saloons, dance halls, and fancy eateries, a cosmopolitan oasis in territorial Arizona. The Tombstone Cookbook is packed with more than 120 recipes inspired by Tombstone's historic eateries and adapted for the modern home cook. Readers will also enjoy learning more about the region's history and lore through sidebars and historic photos.
