The Delectable Burg by Fred Young
A true telling of Dodge City's history without political correctness and Hollywood hype-The Delectable Burg, a name given to Dodge City by Bat Masterson and its newspaper editors, describes the characters who are often omitted from histories of Old Dodge; alcoholics, prostitutes, crooked gamblers, acquitted killers, innocent travelers cheated and robbed. African Americans and Native Americans pitifully treated. From its most violent buffalo hunting days to several fires in the 1880s that destroyed its famous Front Street, these stories are the true history of a "delectable burg"-Dodge City.
