The glamour and fascination of the Old West is brought to life in a new way in this interesting collection of facts and figures. Historic photographs tell stories of their own as the faces of such Old West characters as Geronimo, General Custer and the Unsinkable Molly Brown enliven the text. The scope and history of the Old West is highlighted in a way that is both factual and entertaining in this unique presentation that will appeal to anyone interested in the Old West and the people and places that made it happen. Author Don Bullis has spent his life covering the people and places of the Southwest as a small-town newspaper editor and as a deputy sheriff and town marshal. He has traveled extensively throughout the Western United States to gather the facts, figures, and photos that make up this collection.

Reviewed in the July 5 issue of the Albuquerque Journal.

Bullis' book covers hundreds of ... famous and infamous individuals from the Old West in chapters on soldiers, Indians, cowboys, cattlemen, politicians, and literature. There's a newly added chapter on "Movie and Television of the Old West."
