George Parsons was a banker in California when he decided he was bored with his life. He wanted something different. So, he came to Tombstone, Arizona where he met and became friends with Wyatt Earp. Parsons kept a diary that has been used by historians to keep an accurate record for history. This is my encouragement. As a police officer on the Gulf Coast of Texas I decided to keep a trail for history for follow. It may not be crucial, must-learn history, but it all did happen. Don't let the name fool you. I'm no tenderfoot. I just happen to like the book title.
