WESTERN NON-FICTION—BILLY THE KID AND JESSE JAMES: OUTLAWS OF THE LEGENDARY WEST

WESTERN NON-FICTION
BILLY THE KID AND JESSE JAMES
OUTLAWS OF THE LEGENDARY WEST
BILL MARKLEY
Who was the biggest, baddest outlaw in the Old West... Billy the Kid or Jesse James... Which outlaw did the most to wreak havoc across the frontier... And which outlaw left behind the biggest legacy? There’s hardly any overlap in the lives of the Frontier West’s two most famous lawbreakers, who may have crossed paths only once, but by presenting the essential details of their colorful if short careers side by side, Bill Markley gives us a chance to contemplate and compare the pair and decide for ourselves which one we believe was the greatest outlaw. The author offers his own informed opinion in the afterword, but no matter how anyone stacks them up against each other or against the other badmen of the Wild West, Jesse and the Kid are the two that never ride off into the sunset of our imaginations. They stick with us forever, and they never grow old.” —Gregory Lalire, editor of Wild West magazine

SIX-GUN JUSTICE CONVERSATIONS #76—BILL MARKLEY

SIX-GUN JUSTICE CONVERSATIONS #76
BILL MARKLEY
Make sure your spurs is sharp and shiny as it's time for another  Six-Gun  Justice Conversation segment. Join co-host Richard Prosch as he chats with historian, actor, historian, and Western wordslinger Bill Markley...

History, especially American history, and travel have fascinated Bill Markley since he was a boy growing up on the family farm in Pennsylvania. Moving to Pierre, South Dakota in 1976 to work for the state Department of Environment and Natural Resources was a natural fit for Markley, where he immersed himself in local history and participated in Civil War and Western frontier reenacting. 

Markley has been in films such as Dances With Wolves, Son of the Morning Star, Far and Away, Gettysburg, and Crazy Horse. He worked in Antarctica, traveled the South Pacific, kayaked and backpacked in Alaska, chaperoned a Boy Scout troop to Japan, and has camped, hiked, and rode horseback through the West. He writes for South Dakota Magazine, Roundup, True West, and Wild West...

WESTERN COMICS—JESSE JAMES

WESTERN COMICS
JESSE JAMES #20
ART BY JOE KUBERT OCTOBER 1954






THE LIFE, TIMES, AND TREACHEROUS DEATH OF JESSE JAMES

THE LIFE, TIMES, AND TREACHEROUS DEATH OF JESSE JAMES
Frank Triplett was a mining engineer and author who wrote this very first biography of Jesse James in the seven weeks immediately following Jesse's assassination. Accompanying the book’s publication was a letter of authorization signed by both Jesse’s wife, and his mother, attesting to the authenticity of the book.

Pictured (despite the different title on the cover) is a first edition of this controversial biography of Jesse James, "giving full particulars of each and every dark and desperate deed in the career of this most noted outlaw of any time or nation." 

This biography would become a standard resource for later works on Jesse James, including the novel The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford   (1983) which was turned into the 2007 film of the same name. 

After publication, questions arose concerning the true extent of the cooperation of Jesse's wife and mother in providing material, a somewhat fitting twist for a biography of the criminal who fibbed liberally about his own legend. 

The illustrations include tableaux of various robberies, and a group of firearms labeled Jesse James' Best Friends

The book has been reprinted many times with a number of the covers shown below...

WESTERN MAGAZINES—GUNSMOKE

WESTERN MAGAZINES
GUNSMOKE
Not tied-in to the TV series as I had hoped, the pulp magazine Gunsmoke ran for only two issues in 1953...Sort-lived, perhaps, but look at those cool covers and the dynamite lineup of writers, including two of my favorites, Frank O'Rourke and Steve Frazee, along with many other greats...

WESTERN NOVELS—JUST JOHN

WESTERN NOVELS
JUST JOHN
A HISTORICAL
CHRISTIAN WESTERN SERIES
REG QUIST
From Slave to ranchman...In return for his freedom, a slave is tasked with the job of delivering a valuable stallion to a horse farm in Tennessee. The Civil War is dying down and the roads are dangerous but with some help the horse is delivered and the slave sees freedom...Wishing to be freed from any remembrance of the slave farm, John has a last name that he refuses to use. John’s skill with horses opens doors for him which eventually take him to Fort Worth, Texas. More open doors, over a period of years, find him on a cattle drive to Montana, followed by a second drive into Alberta, Canada. From there, he chooses the name Ware. John Ware stays in Alberta, where he becomes a much loved and respected Alberta rancher...The John Ware story is well known, however since he never learned to read or write he left no historic record of his background.

NORTHWARD TO HOME
JUST JOHN BOOK TWO
A slave's brave journey to living his dream...John Ware, a well-known, highly loved, and acclaimed black cowboy, arrived in Alberta at the beginning of the extraordinary ranching story on the grasslands. He faced and conquered snowstorms, vast distances, rough horses, not to mention a few rough men...As John participated in the building of some of the great Alberta ranches, he faced racism and delayed, but not forgotten, dreams of a ranch and family of his own...Being one of only a handful of black men on the grasslands, his dream seemed to be passing him by. Everything changed when the news of a family moving to Calgary with a daughter of marriageable age hit John’s ears...John's life took on a new focus.

While John was illiterate and left no written records for posterity. But he did leave a strong history on the land and in the minds of those he lived and worked with. Despite the difficult lack of a personally recorded history, Reg Quist has brilliantly pulled together the true story of John Ware
