Wyatt Earp: An American Odyssey
Shunted from his entrepreneurial ambitions to profit from the boomtowns of the frontier, Wyatt Earp returns to law enforcement. In Wichita, Kansas the town leaders become disenchanted with his hardline methods, and so he moves to Dodge City, where an iron-rule is needed. With him comes Mattie Blaylock, who is searching for a chance at a better life. As marshal in Dodge, Wyatt establishes a reputation, but he knows that police work will never deliver what he wants. After joining the gold rush and then serving as a railroad detective in Texas, he returns to Kansas to pin on the badge again and forge his path into history.
