Did You Know?
Ned Buntline, originator of the dime novel portraying life in the wild and wooly West, was a great trial to Marshal Wyatt Earp. Every time the author left New York to gather more material for a new book, he expected Wyatt to cooperate with his fantastic ideas. But when Wyatt moved from Dodge City to Tombstone, he thought he had gotten rid of Buntline. Alas, alas.
