He studies law, takes a wife, buys a house, and settles into an unremarkable life. When his wife dies, he goes off the deep end--ending up in prison. Freed by his father, he flees, and begins a new life. This life will take him to Dodge City, where along with brothers Virgil and Morgan he becomes a lawman. He befriends Doc Holiday, and earns a reputation while accumulating a long list of enemies.
