If you want to read about Tombstone before you visit, one of the best books about Tombstone, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, and the Gunfight at the O.K. Corral is And Die in the West: The Story of the O.K. Corral Gunfight by Paula Mitchell Marks. Unbiased in its approach, it describes the years from Tombstone's discovery in 1877 until Wyatt Earp's death in 1929.
