Popular Western History Books
In those five years, I have received between and books a year from a broad swath of American and international publishers and authors. From a Pulitzer Prize-winning biography from one of the largest New York publishers to the self-funded, self-published first Old West novel, I have read and reviewed hundreds of books, and been grateful for each one sent my way. I have perused dozens of catalogs annually, scanned through thousands of pages of Internet research on authors and their topics, and had the pleasure to correspond, talk with and meet hundreds of men and women who write, edit, design, publish and market Western books. F rom to today, many prognosticators have written columns on the demise of the book and booksellers, the omnipotent power of Amazon, the transformative power of the e-book and the coming age of the audiobook. For those who love the West, its culture and people, its natural wonders and communities, I believe the trend foretells a positive future. All of us who love to read, write and publish about the Old West, in whatever format or formats we enjoy, now have choices. From your locally owned book-seller to Amazon.
