From Library Journal
This new work on the quintessential Cowboy Artist comes with impeccable credentials. Its author directs the Buffalo Bill Historical Center in Cody, Wyoming, and the volume he has produced is in the Smithsonian's National Museum of American Art's "Library of American Art" series. As one would expect, the 100-plus illustrations--including 52 color plates--steal the show. The text is heavily biographical, with critical analysis secondary. Recommended as an introduction to Russell along with two other recent titles: Brian Dippie's Looking at Russell (Amon Carter, 1987) and Ginger Renner's A Limitless Sky: The Work of Charles M. Russell (Northland, 1986).- Russell T. Clement, Brigham Young Univ. Lib., Provo, Ut.Copyright 1989 Reed Business Information, Inc. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition...

From Publishers Weekly
Charlie Russell, whose art combined documentation and romance, played a large part in establishing cowboy culture. Son of one of the leading families in St. Louis, he had dime-novel fantasies about the West. In 1880, aged 16, Russell left home for Montana Territory to be a cowboy. For the next 15 years, he led a devil-may-care existence as a wrangler, drinking heavily, womanizing, pleading for credit. Journalist Taliaferro brings the artist and the frontier to life in this sparkling biography. By 1887, Russell had gained local recognition for his art but was reluctant to push his career. All changed when he married a fiery young woman half his age in 1896. Wife Nancy became his promoter and business agent, arranging exhibitions and sales nationwide. By all accounts, Russell was a charmer; much of his success as a...

Book Description
He was hungry for a solitary ride such as had, before now, drawn much of the lonely ache out of his heart and keyed him up to the life which he must live and which chafed his spirit more than even he realized. Instead of such slender comfort, he was forced to ride beside the girl who had hurt him--so close that his knee sometimes brushed her horse-- and to listen to her friendly chatter and make answer, at times, with at least some show of civility.

The Virginian

From AudioFile
The Virginian, manly cowpuncher of the Wild West, wins the heart of a schoolteacher from Vermont. Brave, unassuming and sensitive, he saves the county from horse thieves, caters to an obsessive chicken named Emily and sweeps the young teacher off her feet with his reinterpretation of Browning. Winiarski succeeds in animating the Virginian's wit and mannerisms although his drawl is unconvincing. His female voices are smooth and natural. The reading quickly draws attention away from itself and to the details of each scene. The presentation leaves the listener with many vivid and memorable scenes, but the story loses its resonance in abridgment. E.S.B. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.
