 You young'uns might not know who Tim McCoy was. He was one of the first cowboy stars in movies.

I have been lapping up every page of his book, "Tim McCoy Remembers The West". It is a dandy, because he was no drug store/dandy cowboy, he was a real deal cowboy (and Arapaho) who just so happened to turn up in Hollywood, which is just a little part of his larger-than-life life.

It has lots of wonderful history (insights to Custer's Battle I had never read before), movie making, living in Wyoming in the 1880s…and on and on.

Western, Hollywood (you will learn why Hollywood was the start of it all), and history buffs will find this a gem.
