Youngs story, based in large part on an exhaustive reading of period newspapers and government records, begins with Dodges birth as a dusty buffalo hunter camp and ends at the close of the cattle town era.

Its twelve chapters cover buffalo hunting, violence, saloons, gambling, prostitutes, newspapers, churches, practical jokes and more. A fitting 1910 postscript by then New York sportswriter Bat Masterson laments the days when Dodge was “the liveliest town in the great Southwest” — “the Delectable Burg” had become “quiet and lamblike,” “a thriving country village.” Illustrated with period photographs.
