The Wild Converted West…

Yep, you guessed it, partner – all converts.

Buffalo Bill (deathbed), Kit Carson (through marriage) and Doc Holliday (heatedly debated -although his sister was a Catholic nun)

I guess, by extension, John Wayne should have been be included as well.

Happy trails!

    Blood and Thunder by Hampton Sides is a great biography of Kit Carson. I apologize for going on and on about all the books I read, but that's what I live for, I guess.

    Anyway, read Blood and Thunder, and then Ghost Soldiers; they're awesome.

    John Wayne was a Catholic? I had no idea.

  3. Matthew Lickona says

    Deathbed conversion.

    Blood and Thunder is great. Gotta get Ghost Soldiers. Thanks for the recommendations.

    Best Korrektiv post ever.
