According to Kate: The Legendary Life of Big Nose Kate, Love of Doc Holliday by Chris EnssDoc Hollidays paramour Big Nose Kate could never get a publisher to give her the big bucks she demanded to tell the story of her life, but that didnt mean she didnt collect material she wanted to use in a biography. Over the fifty years Mary Kate Cummings, alias Big Nose Kate, traversed the West she saved letters from her family, musings she had written about her love interests, and life with the notorious John Henry Holliday. Using rare, never before published material Big Nose Kate stock-piled in anticipation of writing the tale of her days on the Wild Frontier, the definitive book about the famous soiled dove will finally be told. Kate claims to have witnessed the Gunfight at the OK Corral and exchanged words with the likes of Wyatt Earp and Josephine Marcs. Theres no doubt she embellished her adventures, but that doesnt take away from their historical importance. She was a controversial figure in a rough and rowdy territory. What she witnessed, the lifestyle she led, and the influential western people she met are fascinating and represent a time period much romanticized.

During our mini-road trip to Tombstone, Arizona, my husband and I had a terrific time eating lunch at the historic Big Nose Kate's Saloon, which is also a restaurant. Live and lively music entertainment, great food, Southwestern memorabilia and photos covering the walls, efficient staff dressed in Old West attire, and a slightly creepy spiral staircase "The Shaft" leading to the basement level now a gift store, it was originally the bar that also had access to mine shafts - what's not to love? I had the awesome Patty Melt, the saloon's signature burger on toasted rye bread topped with melted Swiss cheese and grilled onions, along with a side of fries. However, Kate's biggest claim to fame was the fact that she was also Doc Holliday's girlfriend.
