The collected stories of Max Brand by Max Brand( Book )

4 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Max Brand's novels and stories have defined the West for thousands of readers attracted to his bright, vigorous prose. John Cawelti, Russel G. Nye, and other scholars of the western view his work as key in the development of the genre. Between 1917 and 1944 he wrote prolifically, making Max Brand one of America's most popular writers. But Max Brand wasn't his real name, and his work extended well beyond boots and saddles. Born Frederick Schiller Faust, he realized his name would be a hindrance when World War I was raging. He took the name Max Brand and made it famous. Along the way he invented characters who became famous, too: Dr. Kildare, for instance, and secret agent Anthony Hamilton

Bullying the Moqui by Charles Fletcher Lummis( Book )

4 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 293 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Bullying the Moqui is the dramatic story of the attempts to forcibly "civilize" the Hopi Indians of Arizona by herding the children to government schools at gunpoint, by "scalping" the men with sheepshears and suppressing the sacred dances and religious ceremonies. This book not only preserves the brilliant journalistic record of Charles Fletcher Lummis' campaign against the Indian policies but reveals fresh research on his personal relationship with Theodore Roosevelt and his influence upon the President's views of the American Indian -- Book jacket

The happy man by Robert Easton( Book )

7 editions published between 1943 and 1993 in English and held by 219 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long out of print, this unique account of life on a California cattle ranch was unanimously acclaimed by reviewers when it was first published in 1943. The book grew out of the author's own experiences as a ranch hand in the Sacramento River Delta country northeast of San Francisco. Thoroughly enjoyable reading, it is also a valuable description of the modern cattle industry, which, as Easton puts it, does not so much raise cattle as manufacture them, turning "beef into dollars as fast as Henry Ford turned cars off the assembly line" -- Back cover
This promised land : a novel by Robert Easton( Book )

5 editions published between 1982 and 1996 in English and German and held by 182 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This epic novel recreates the complex and sometimes violent clash of cultures, dreams and ambitions that brought about the colonization of California. We follow the tumultuous love affair of a Chumash Indian girl and a Spanish soldier who meet in 1769. Into the lives of Lospe and Antonio, Easton weaves fascinating research on Indian culture and his own formidable knowledge and understanding of Old California. We experience Chumash village life as never before depicted-- the unscrupulous astrologer-priest, a pet condor, the homosexual who lays out the dead, the astronomy cave, the use of lizards and coyotes as messengers to the spirit world. We also gain new understanding of such famous historical figures as Junipero Serra and Gaspar de Portola. This Promised Land presents a vivid cast of Indians, missionaries, rebellious Mexicans and American settlers in a cinematic novel of love and strife, hatred and reconciliation, nobility and greed. This is the first in a trilogy, The Saga of California, which will follow the descendants of Lospe and Antonio through several generations up to the present day -- Back cover

An engrossing account of China just before the Bamboo Curtain came down, concealing China from Western eyes for a generation. This is the true story of Fred Schroder, American trouble-shooter and camel caravanner whose harrowing travels through Mongolia, Siberia, Tibet and China's Far West, make for rich history and high adventure. He has a shoot-out with a nomad chieftain, encounters living gods, gets involved in two revolutions and one coup d'etat, and explores the astounding Royal Tombs at Xian-- now called the greatest archaelogical discovery of our time. Easton writes in the first person, to capture the voice and idiom of the indomitable Schroder -- Back cover
