About the author:
A native of southeastern Arizona, John Rose has dedicated decades to the research and study of the vivid history that surrounds his home, in Cochise County. Mr. Rose has been published in the nation's top-selling western history magazine, has appeared in Arizona Highways magazine and television, and has been interviewed by Voice of America. As a nationally known expert of Cochise County history, he has published ground breaking articles extensively on his internet site known as Wyatt Earp Explorers.com. This critically acclaimed website has the largest readership of any Tombstone and Earp related site in the world. Rose's personal antique collection is one of the key Tombstone, Earp, and Charleston inventories, extending into the Arizona Territory, Geronimo, and the Apache Wars. It includes original documents and photos, saloon equipment, personal possessions of noted characters of those colorful times, and many other items. As he has said before, "If you want to understand America, you have to come to the West; if you want to understand the West, you have to come to this [The San Pedro River] Valley." His first book, Charleston and Millville A.T. Hell on the San Pedro is a critically acclaimed commercial success, as was his second book, On the Road to Tombstone: Drew's Station, Contention City, Fairbank, and his third which was San Pedro River Water Wars in the Post Drew's Station Era. His fourth book was Tombstone's Founders and Pioneers Speak, and now for the first time, Tombstone is brought to life as it never has been before, in Tombstone Pioneer Samantha Fallon's Wanton Past.

Tombstone Pioneer Samantha Fallon's Wanton Past
 

Authored by John D. Rose

Samantha Fallon was a Tombstone Pioneer with secrets in her past that she wanted to hide. Within her boarding house she had entertained many men of Tombstone, some of them very prominent. She spent most of the rest of her life trying to create a new reputation and life for herself. But a court case would bring her face to face with her Tombstone days again as she unwittingly divulged confidential information to a Pinkerton spy living under her own roof. Those reports, those secrets, are now published in substantial detail for the first time ever in this book. Other Tombstone Pioneers round out this remarkable story of affairs and a child's heartbreaking abandonment. Wyatt Earp, George Parsons, Dr. Giberson, and many others take us back to Samantha Fallon's Tombstone, with groundbreaking insights and new information.
