A year ago, I listened to the audiobook version of Mary Doria Russell’s book Doc, a very human perspective of the legendary Doc Holliday. I fell in love with the book and never miss an opportunity to recommend it for its storytelling, beautiful language, and fascinating perspective of post-Civil War Kansas.
The Kansas Center for the Book just named Doc a 2012 Kansas Notable Book, which means that Doc isn’t just a great book, it’s worthy of being included in the canon of Kansas literature.
Buy it, borrow it, download it, read it, listen to it. Doc will change the way you understand history and humanity.
