MRS. EARP THE WIVES AND LOVERS OF THE EARP BROTHERS
by Sherry Monahan
The stories of Wyatt Earp and his brothers and their wives and lovers – a fun and often touching peek into the lives of the women who won the hearts of some of the biggest heroes of the Old West.
“Wyatt, Virgil, Morgan, James, Warren, and Newton – the Earp brothers, a subject about which volumes and volumes of Western history have been written. Just when you think you know everything about these notorious men, Sherry Monahan comes along with a unique angle: the women in their lives, who knew them better than anyone, and have their own unique stories to tell. Wives, lovers, prostitutes … Who were these women? Where did they come from? How did they meet these men? The Earp brothers were some tough men, so their women must’ve been some pretty tough customers themselves. After all, who knows a man better than his woman?”- Bruce Boxleitner, actor and writer
“The Earp women finally get their due. It’s about damn time.” – Bob Boze Bell, executive editor, TRUE WEST magazine

Grab your glass and take to the wine trail with food genealogist Sherry Monahan as she traces the roots of California’s VINES, WINES & PIONEERS. While cowboys and early settlers were writing the oft-told history of the Wild West, California’s wine pioneers were cultivating a delicious industry. The story begins when Franciscan missionaries planted the first grapes in Southern California in 1769. Almost a century later, news of gold drew thirsty prospectors and European immigrants to California’s promise of wealth. From Old World vines sprang a robust and varied tradition of wine cultivation that overcame threats of pests and Prohibition to win global prestige. Journey with Monahan as she uncorks this vintage history and savors the stories of California’s historic wineries and vineyards.
