Tom Clavin - #1811-1

Read more

It's episode 1811, so let's go back to 1811.  And then let's go forward 70 years to 1881, when the fight at the OK Corral occurred.  You see, it all connects.  It certainly connected for Tom, who wrote a book about it.  It's the latest in his series about cowboys, a neglected topic these days.

Tom Clavin – Wild Bill: The True Story of the American Frontier’s First Gunfighter

Read more
February 25, 2019 - We welcome a familiar face back into the passenger seat of our time machine. It's Tom Clavin, who we last chatted with about the book, Valley Forge, he co-authored with Bob Drury. Tom returns solo with the definitive true story of James Butler "Wild Bill" Hickok.

A soldier in the Civil War, spy for the Union, scout, lawman, gunfighter, gambler, showman, actor, and romantic, he crossed paths with General Custer, befriended the boy who grew up into Buffalo Bill Cody, and locked horns with Calamity Jane -- which may surprise those who've grown up with Hollywood portrayals of the pair as lovers.

Wild Bill's life story is also peppered with Ben Thompson, Kit Carson, and a slew of too-slow gamblers and gunmen looking to beat the fastest gun in the West and steal the title themselves. We can enjoy all these stories in Wild Bill: The True Story of the American Frontier's First Gunfighter. Tom Clavin is the author or coauthor of sixteen books, including the #1 best-seller Dodge City: Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson, and the Wickedest Town in the American West.

#1310 Valley Forge with Bob Drury and Tom Clavin

Read more

"It's a very patriotic story in the best sense of the word … these were people who were fighting for a cause."

— Tom Clavin

Clay and David are joined by Bob Drury and Tom Clavin, the #1 New York Times bestselling authors, to discuss their newest book, Valley Forge.

In December of 1777, the American Continental Army struggled to survive the coming winter. Valley Forge tells the story of how this army, after a string of demoralizing defeats, not only survived, but regrouped to take advantage of their last chance at redemption in a stunning victory at the Battle of Monmouth Court House.

Valley Forge was the darkest moment of the revolutionary war. Twelve thousand American troops were stationed at a place 23 miles northwest of Philadelphia. If there could be suffering, they felt it at Valley Forge — nearly starving, mutiny, disease, internecine struggles, you name it. Drury and Clavin also give us insights about Alexander Hamilton, and perhaps why George Washington listened to him so carefully. Of all of the people who have a role in this great story, Thomas Jefferson is not one of them, and for that reason, all of those present never quite felt that Jefferson was fully one of the band of brothers.
