Sorry, this item has sold.

This is a fun and wonderful vintage hardcover with dust jacket. 1980 Bonanza Books. This copy is very good inside and out. The pages are clean and free of markings but they do have light natural tanning from age. No foxing, just tanning. The binding is tight and straight. The brown hardcover boards under jacket are like new. There is a small scuff inside front cover on first blank page where pervious owners small name sticker removed. The dust jacket is clean and still holding some shine. There is a hint of shelf wear to back of jacket top edge, small tear but overall very nice jacket.

The stories, legends, tall tales, traditions, ballads and songs of the people of the Great Plains and Far West can be found in this book. People all over the world are fascinated with the America West and its history for good reason. The American West conjures up images of drama, color, perseverance, courage, and a history unique to America. This revised edition tells of the colorful characters, Indians, scouts, cowboys, and pioneers. From Billy the Kid, to Calamity Jane, here all all the details of the old west.
The book provides unique views of western outlaw, wagon trains, and mythical men like Black Bart, Cherokee Bill, Wyatt Earp, Bat Masterson and more.
The editor, Mr Botkin, was one of America's most eminent folklorists. He was folklore expert for the Library of Congress and president of the American Folklore Society.
