Description: After just two seasons, "Deadwood(R) " has become one of cable' s highest rated series, a symbol of how great television can be when pushed to its limits. From the masterful acting to the surprisingly credible re-creation of a Western gold-rush town to the grippingly profane dialogue, "Deadwood(R) "is television made at the highest level of craft. "Deadwood(R) "is a vividly illustrated and comprehensive companion volume that brings fans behind the scenes to get the full story of HBO"(R) "' s award-winning drama-- from Custer' s opening of the Black Hills (and defeat by the Sioux), to the compelling story of the frontier Chinese and how they braved racism and formed a shadowy society in the west. With unprecedented access, the book gives readers in-depth interviews with cast, crew, writers, designers, and historians. Original, specially commissioned photography provides a fresh look at the people and places of "Deadwood(R)," with new portraits of the lead characters (based on actual persons), detailed depictions of the set (including the Gem Saloon and Jack Langrishe' s theater), and images revealing how the show is made, from costuming and makeup to the mixing of "Deadwood(R) " mud. A provocative, entertaining, and always evocative portrait of an era.

"It's all either fear or faith" : the making of Deadwood
The language of men : lies, profanity, and greed, and how words can lead us to the apprehension of our common existence
The color : gold makes a man a man, and lifts us up above the baboons
Intoxicants : drinking, gambling, dope, and the rule of the fetish in Deadwood
Whores : the blow job monologues, the tittylicker, and the job of the pimp
...Love and marriage : love as a foreign condition, doomed relationships, and men of few words
The badge and the gun : law and order are not the same thing, and tend to have little to do with one another
The mystery of the peaches : the politicians will always screw you, but there are circumstances in which we would rather have them around
Ordinary and extraordinary violence : "tell your God to ready for blood"
In his last extremity : the good doctor's approach to dying, the Reverend Smith, and the death of Wild Bill Hickok
...And Mr. Wu : to the celestial is given the last word
