Draw: The Greatest Gunfights of the American West by James Reasoner
DRAW, as its title indicates, is a study of many of the more famous gunfights and gunfighters of the Old West. It's James Reasoner's first non-fiction work, and it's a winner.
DRAW is well researched, and contains many little known anecdotes about the colorful characters that populate its pages (for example, gunfighter Clay Allison, was wont, when drunk, to strip off his clothes, and wearing nothing but his boots and hat, gallop his horse through town, shooting out windows and streetlights). The book is fast paced, and holds the reader's attention as well as, if not better than, any work of fiction.

Appomattox by James Reasoner
Appomattox by James Reasoner
APPOMATTOX, the 10th and final volume in James Reasoner's THE CIVIL WAR BATTLE SERIES, certainly lives up to the preceding nine volumes. The ending of the Civil War, and the conclusion of the Brannon family saga during the conflict, is once again well-researched, and tautly written.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Best LeDoux CD Yet, July 28 2003
HORSEPOWER is without a doubt the best CD Chris LeDoux has ever released. Several of the songs are poignant and introspective, others are upbeat and just plain fun. "One Less Tornado" is wonderful, "A Cowboy Was Born" is a great tribute to our Western heritage, "Buffalo Grass" had my eyes misting, and "The Ride" parallels my own life. The journey that last song evokes for myself, as a horseman, struck a chord deep in my heart. Chris has gone back to his rodeo cowboy roots, and it's about time.
HORSEPOWER is a MUST for any fan of western music, and an essential addition to any Chris LeDoux fan's collection.
