While a bit cheesy, the Time Life Old West series covers a lot of characters

i don't know yet which characters are in the game, but this book probably covers just about all of them...and is really interesting:

There is o
Some old west sites on line that cover well all the characters.

If you ever want the true history of say the gunfight at the OK Corral. I recommend To Die In The West and Murdered On The Streets Of Tombstone. I know the author of the later as I live near Tombstone. Excellent books that cut away the Myth.
