Poag's Guide to Shopkeepers and Shootists of Bodie by Larry Poag
 
Numerous books and articles have been written about Bodie, some perpetuating myths and some making an earnest effort to set the facts straight.  This is not a typical history of Bodie, chronicling the events that defined the town; this is an attempt to capture the spirit of Bodie as it existed at a point in time - the year 1880.  We tried to recreate the town as it existed in 1880 and relate it to the remnants you might see on a visit to Bodie.  We want you to stroll down Bodie’s Main Street and get some glimpses of what the town was like at a time when it was like no other place on earth. The book identifies the exact locations where some of Bodie’s many gunfights took place. However, to put all in this perspective we start with a brief background history of Bodie, and in conclusion bring Bodie forward in time to the state of “arrested decay” now maintained by the State Park.

Paperback, 80 pages, 8.5 x 11 inches.
