Was There Really a Gunfight at the O.K. Corral? explores whether there's a factual basis for different sayings and beliefs about the Wild West. Readers will find out if there were really haunted ghost towns in the Wild West, if Calamity Jane was a real person, and if it's true that kids in the Wild West went to school in one-room schoolhouses. They'll also learn fun facts about the Wild West through entertaining sidebars that appear throughout the book. United Kingdom art director Colin W. Thompson will be doing the spot illustrations for the title.
