Supported by strong ratings and a rich history, "The Real Deadwood" provides background and historical accuracy for the figures depicted on the hit HBO series, and takes a broader look at the times that spawned them. Covering law and order, politics, journalism, and early medicine, and examining some "historical guest stars" who may play a factor in future Deadwood episodes (Teddy Roosevelt was an acquaintance of series protagonist Seth Bullock and made several visits to the lawless town; Bullock turned away Wyatt Earp when he offered his services as a lawman)-"The Real Deadwood" will allow readers to traverse the unpaved streets of an outlaw town without ever getting their boots dirty.
