Thanks to Hollywood, we are all somewhat familiar with the stories of men like Bat Masterson and Wyatt Earp. The movies only tell snippets of the true story, and often embellish or omit details, leaving us with a vague idea of the history instead of an understand.

Tomorrow in Pampa, Tom Clavin will hosting a special event celebrating the lifelong friendship between Masterson and Earp. Clavin is an award winning journalist and an award winning author.

His latest book is titled "Dodge City," and it follows the friendship from the early days when Masterson was a buffalo hunter to the harrowing tales that came out of Dodge City. Other legendary figures from when the west was wild that appear in the book include Jesse James, Billy the Kid, Wild Bill Hickok, and even Theodore Roosevelt.

The event begins at 6 pm in the Pampa Chamber of Commerce Building. The event is in the MK Brown Room. A book signing is scheduled to follow.
