Here are some of mine...



Italian book with a mixture of photos from US westerns and from the Leone family archive. Strange CD has a couple of Morricones but also Tammy Wynette's 'Stand by Your Man'. The photos are all full page or double page spreads.



Jarach was allowed to visit the Once Upon a time in the West set to take some photos including the ones of Leone with the vintage camera and Robards and Cardinale playing Baseball.



 In the same series as Howard Hughes one on 'spaghetti westerns'. The usual cast, credits and synopsis. No photos.

CJ, how do you rate Cawelti's book in a 1-10 scale?

A 9/10 on its subject and only because it probably should of went to 1980 and covered a few more Westerns from the end of the Golden Age. As it is it stopped just before the serious decline of the Western.

Interesting reading, covering the cattle trade and the black presence in it. Full of stories featuring black participants.

That Negro Cowboys book sounds interesting. However the image is too small who is it by?

Here is one I found today at a used book store I've been flipping through it it looks great

You mean who is the character on the cover? He's Nat Love, a picture made in 1907 and published in his autobiography. You'll find the picture in the book. I don't own that particular edition of the book but an older one with a different cover which I can't find at amazon. The picture was also used for what I presume is just another release of the Durham book with an altered title:




 


A biography of Nat Love:

Published in 1974, it has the advantage of keeping out the crap the actor made after, discussing Magnum Force and just naming Lightfoot and Eiger. Not very informative about Eastwood personal life (Thank God) it is full of pointed observations on the movies by the author and quotes from other reviewers. About the movies with Leone it tends too much to assign Clint a bigger role than he really had, though K.'s assessments of the movies are fair. 7\10

Here are a few more books. The one below is all about the court & cases of  Issac C. Parker the "Hanging Judge" Arkansas and the Indian Territory.



These next two are on the building of the Union Pacific & the various "Hell On Wheels" boom towns that followed its progress:

Western Badmen - Dorothy M. Johnson (sorry can't find a cover to post).

Agile portraits of western outlaws, famous or less famous (but deserving to be more). In spite of the preachy tone (which I thought at the start was ironic) the great storytelling gifts of the author (who based herself both on secondary literature and own researches) makes this a recommended reading (though probably dated) for all the non specialists.

The one in the middle is Sam Bass, The one on his right is the one who betrayed him.
