Synopsis for "The Making of a Marshal!"

Wyatt Earp rode into the town of Ellisworth, Kansas in the summer of 1873 with 3000 dollars in his pocket from hunting buffalo and seeking to get into the cattle business. However when he sets himself up in town he learned that cattle stock prices had gone down and that cowboys from Texas have had to travel to to Kansas to sell their herds. Earp soon learned that Ellisworth was a very lawless town with cowboys constantly fighting with each other and the local sheriff unwilling to do anything to stop it.

However, this all changed the night that Bill and Ben Thompson got into a fight with a local over cards and plan on avenging their good name by shooting down John Sterling. During the stand off, Ben Thompson shoots the sheriff dead. Wyatt then watched the exchange of gunfire with Marshal "Happy Jack" Morco as the Thompson brothers began to pack up to flee town. However the Thompson brothers refused to leave town, so the mayor then ordered the marshals to deal with Bill Thompson. When the marshals became unwilling to go toe-to-toe with two armed cowboys, Wyatt decided to take matters into his own hands. Taking the job of sheriff, Wyatt then purchased a pair of guns and then stood down Bill Thompson, using his negotiation skills to convince the crazed cowboy to stand down and surrender to the law.

After succeeding in doing so, the mayor of Ellisworth offers Wyatt to stay on as sheriff, however Earp at that time had no interest in being a lawman and turns over the star and rides off to continue his career as a buffalo hunter.

Synopsis for "Where the Buffalo Roam!"

In September of 1873, Wyatt Earp had gone back to hunting buffalo with his new assistant "Fuzzy" Forks. They hunt a herd of buffalo "Indian style" but the don't catch as much good buffalo meet and furs and are forced to sell at a lower price. Deciding to abandon the "Indian style" of hunting, Wyatt decides to use the modern method of using a rifle on crossed stick (like a tripod) to gun down the beasts, as they don't usually detect the danger of long range shots provided that the buffalo don't smell the hunter or the blood of his kills.

Wyatt succeeds in this when they find their next herd until the buffalo smell the blood of their fallen and charge at him. Trying to flee on horseback, Wyatt is denied when his horse runs off in a panic before he can get to it. With no other choice, Wyatt risks his life by grabbing hold of one of the passing buffalo, then manages to wrangle him self up into a tree to safety.

The commotion has also attracted a tribe of Comanches who attack both Wyatt and Fuzzy who flee in their wagon. When the leader of the Comanche war party gets close enough, Wyatt pulls him into the wagon and easily defeats him in battle and forces him to order his men to retreat. In defeating Chief Black Eagle, the Comanche leader tells Wyatt that his people will not trouble him if he ever hunts on their land again. Wyatt does so until the winter of 1874 when he decides to give another shot at getting into the cattle business and heads off to Wichita.

Synopsis for "Gun-Fighter!"

In the spring of 1874, Wyatt Earp is on his way to Wichita, Kansas to try to get into the cattle business. Along the way he comes across a rattle snake which he shoots before it can strike at his horse.

Remarking over his shooting skills, Wyatt remembers the day when his father, Nicholas Earp, gave him his first rifle when he was only sixteen years old, but recalls that he had been shooting guns on his fathers farm as early as six. Honding his shooting skill Wyatt would go out hunting for food for the family, his brother Virgil surprised to learn that his young brother self taught himself to shoot.

This recollection leads to Wyatt recollecting his life: How he was born in Momouth, Illinois on March 19, 1848 and how his family moved to Pella, Iowa when he was two. His siblings and how his eldest sister Martha died before the birth of his youngest sibling Adelia. When the Civil War broke out his father and older brothers joined the Union Army, leaving his sons to look after the farm while he was gone. A year later Wyatt became fed up of farming and tried to enlist in the Union Army as well, only to find out his father was the recruiter and to be sent home to tend to the farm. As the war progressed soon his brother James and later his father returned home from the war and his father decided to move the family west to San Bernardo, California. It was during the family's travel to Omaha where Wyatt saw his first gunfight. Relating the story to his father, Nicholas Earp warned his son that the west was untamed and fraught with danger.

With his recollections over, Wyatt finds himself in Wichita for the first time in 10 years and has come to find it more lawless than he ever remembered it....
