  • I guess I've become hooked on Tascosa and her cowboys. Yeah, anything that I can find on it. I read.
    This was a very good read

  • I wrote a glowing review of the book which got dumped before it was posted. But the book is great -- as a native of Amarillo, I should be a better judge than most.

    The book was shipped promptly and was in really good condition.

  • The book was in near mint condition, the price was very reasonable and the service was excellent. I couldn't be more pleased with this transaction.

  • This is the story of the town of Tascosa, Texas from its beginnings to when it died out in the early 1900's. It is a great western but it is all true. The town was pretty rowdy like most cattle towns. There is one chapter on Billy the kid and two on Pat Garrett. Each chapter has very nice pen drawings on the first page. If you like true to life westerns in the tradition of Charles Siringo you will like this book, I did.

  • This book was written by my great uncle. I never knew him, as he died in 1974 and I was born in 1971. I have the original copies of his books as well as many of his original paintings. This is a great read even given my personal bias. Have fun reading a great book!
