L'autore: Don has been an Old West fan for about as long as he can remember. He, like so many baby boomers, sat with his father in front of a small black & white television set watching westerns like ?Gunsmoke? with the bumbling but lovable Festus Hagen and ?Wanted: Dead or Alive? starring Steve McQueen, the first character to holster a sawed-off rifle. Before that, it was singing cowboys like Roy Rogers and Gene Autry on Saturday morning matinees. With Don?still wearing his coon-skin cap?the West stuck with him: he traveled the American West in search of movie locations, went to Hollywood, met Roy Rogers, worked on a western, and collected all things western?including costumes?until there was no room left in his home. So, to reduce the number of file boxes with scribbled notes on the American West, he put those notes in this book.
