Books of the West - 6

For Christmas I received one book only this year, but it looks like it will be a good one, Outlaw Tales of Arizona, The Stories of Arizona's Most Famous Robbers, Rustlers, and Bandits, by  Jan Cleere. who is a member of the Arizona Authors Association and has two other non-fiction, historical books published, More Than Petticoats and Amazing Girls of Arizona.

I ran across a couple more westerns and had to purchase them, The Gunsmith #58, The Deadly Healer, by J. R. Roberts, a Charter Book by the Berkley Publishing Group, and Stagecoach Station #12: Tucson, by Hank Mitchum, a Bantam Book published by arrangement with Book Creations, Inc., of the UK. I found these two pocket-size books in a thrift store while my wife was shopping in Tuesday Mornings for Christmas presents, and I am embarrassed to tell what the price was, so I'll keep it to myself. I'm not a fan of series-type novels yet, but I would have been remiss if I hadn't procured them, and maybe they will make me into a fan. Stranger things have happened.

I've added all three to my stack of books waiting to be read and hope to get to them sometime in the near future.

(NOTE; No money or gifts were received for mentioning these books.)
