Read for a trip to Deadwood with my family. Due to covid they aren't running tours so I wanted to brush up and get some fun facts to share. This was great for that. Have never seen HBOs Deadwood but it doesn't bring it up too often.

I really enjoyed this book! The categories and how the author found a way to fit in so many random topics kept it very interesting. I loved that he kept all the historical facts true and didn't fall prey to the over-exaggerated stories. Its very accurate. Definitely recommend if you're interested in more history before visiting Deadwood!

A good book to introduce readers to the various characters and traits of Deadwood. It mostly just compares the TV show to reality and thus isn't suitable for those interested in proper research. However for those who've seen the show and want to get an idea of how accurate it is, this is ideal.
