Review by: Scott Turner on April 06, 2010 :
I found "Fighting for Air - The Unknown Adventures of the Young Doc Holliday" an excellent and highly enjoyable read. The well paced story takes you through the life of Doc Holliday up to the point most people know him. I really enjoyed the historical detail of the novel covering Holliday's experiences through the Civil War, the carpetbagger era in the South and the boom of the U.S. as the country expands westward in the later part of the 1800s. Against this historical backdrop, the author does an outstanding job of getting inside the character of Doc Holliday to help understand the events and people in his life that created the man everyone knows mostly from the OK Corral. The history altering events that Holliday witnesses are covered from his viewpoint and give a unique personal perspective into how these events affected both Holiday's course in life and individuals of this time period. Yet the narrative never stops to digress into an extended history lesson. There are numerous well drawn supporting characters both historical and fictional that come in and out of Holliday's life along the way. As with the events he experiences, the effect these people have in the choices Holliday makes in his life are fascinating. Putting historical events and characters aside, the book is also a fun, rip-roaring, fast paced adventure! I would highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a well crafted character driven story, historical fiction or just looking for a good read.

I loved it and I didn't want to stop reading once I'd started. I'ts a fascinating story and an eye opener as to how things really were in the Civil War and after as young Doc travels westward. A very well written novel and it makes me want to know more of the early history of this country. I hope a movie is made from this book - it's just begging for it. I'm looking forward to the next novel by this author.
