The real life Wyatt Earp was a close friend of western movie star William S. Hart. When Earp died in 1929, Mr. Hart was a pallbearer at the famous lawman’s funeral.
Spend a rare evening in Bill Hart’s Mansion living room as New York Times best selling author-historian Casey Tefertiller pulls back the curtain and reveals the true life story of this legendary frontier marshal. You will hear about his early years as a lawman, the OK Corral, the time he spent here in Los Angeles and his friendship with William S. Hart.
This will be Tefertiller’s only Southern California appearance, and it’s happening Saturday, April 23, at 8 p.m. as part of the 2016 Santa Clarita Cowboy Festival. Tickets are only $35 and must be purchased in advance [here].
Tefertiller was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize for his groundbreaking research and book “Wyatt Earp: Life Behind The Legend”. It was voted the “New York Times Notable Book of the Year” and is listed in “Best Books of the Southwest.”
Regarded as the premiere authority on the famous lawman, Tefertiller has been the featured expert on such TV shows as “This Week In History” (History Channel), “American Experience” (PBS), “Gunslingers” (American Heroes Channel), “History Detectives” (PBS) and “Expedition Unknown” (Travel Channel)“. He has contributed over 25 articles to various western history magazines and has lectured all over the country on Earpiana History.
Tefertiller is also a sports writer for the San Francisco Examiner, a correspondent for “Baseball America” magazine and co-author of the book “Mental Toughness: Baseball’s Winning Edge”.
