Madam Millie : bordellos from Silver City to Ketchikan by Max Evans( Book )

7 editions published between 2002 and 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 366 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Mildred Clark Cusey was a whore, a madam, an entrepreneur, and above all, a survivor. The story of Silver City Millie, as she referred to herself, is the story of one woman's personal tragedies and triumphs as an orphan, a Harvey Girl waitress on the Santa Fe railroad, a prostitute with innumerable paramours, and a highly successful bordello businesswoman. Millie broke the mold in so many ways, and yet her life's story of survival was not unlike that of thousands of women who went West only to find that their most valuable assets were their physical beauty and their personality. Petite at five feet tall with piercing blue eyes, Millie captured men's attention by her very essence and her unmistakable joie de vivre." "Born to Italian immigrant parents near Kansas City, she and her sister were orphaned early and separated from each other. Millie learned hard lessons on the streets, but she never gave up and she vowed to protect and support her ailing older sister. Caught in a domestic squabble in her foster home, Millie wound up in juvenile court with Harry Truman as her judge. This would be only the first of many brushes in her life with prominent politicans." "When physicians diagnosed her sister with tuberculosis and recommended she move West to a Catholic home in Denning, New Mexico, Millie moved with her. Expenses ran high and after a brief stint waiting tables as a Harvey Girl, Millie found that her meager tips could easily be augmented by turning tricks. Thus, out of financial need and devotion to her sister, Mildred Cusey turned to a life of prostitution and a career at which she soon excelled and became both rich and famous."--Jacket
Wildest of the Wild West : true tales of a frontier town on the Santa Fe Trail by Howard Bryan( Book )

2 editions published in 1988 in English and held by 326 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The "Wild West" stories of Dodge City, Deadwood, and Tombstone pale in comparison to the incredible story of Las Vegas, New Mexico, for decades considered the most violent community on America's Western frontier. Due largely to is strategic location on the historic Santa Fe Trail, and laster as an end-of-track town on the westward pushing Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad, the Hispanic farm and ranch community reeled under the impact of Indian warfare, conquering armies, insurrectionists, outlaws and gunfighters, and an ever increasing tide of immigrants from Eastern states. Wildest of the Wild West is not a community history as such, but rather a compilation of violent, dramatic, and melodramatic events that shook the New Mexico town over a 60-year period from 1835 to 1915. Most of these tales, many published here for the first time in books form, were drawn from the pages of early newspapers, and the text includes generous samples of the informal style, wit , and humor of frontier journalists in describing events of the day. The tales are not confined to Las Vegas itself, but extend up and down the Santa Fe Trail and the rail line that succeeded it. Las Vegas. however, is always the focal point. Dramatic highlights include the true stories of an Apache chief's daughter who chose death to dishonor, the first hanging of a woman on the Western frontier, and Italian hermit who sought solitude on a mountain peak, midnight lynchings from the "hanging windmill," secret outlaw gangs that included members of the police force, a heavyweight title bout, and the filming of some of the earliest Western movies. the book is illustrated with vintage black-and-white photographs, drawn from historical photo archives, and includes an introduction by Max Evans, prominent Western author, novelist, and screen writer. With this book, Las Vegas, New Mexico, (not to be confused with Las Vegas, Nevada), truly takes its place in history as the "Wildest of the Wild West" -- Book jacket
Hot biscuits : eighteen stories by women and men of the ranching West( Book )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 244 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The stories in this anthology range as wide as the Rockies, from a murder mystery to the tale of a unique horse trainer, to a family's desperate battle against a grass and forest fire to the story of a world famous violinist. But they share a common denominator: biscuits. Almost every story includes hot biscuits as a feature of daily life in the working West. Biscuits, as it turns out, are more important in western life than guns, and maybe more than coffee. In the West, people who could make superior biscuits received more respect than the mayor and the police chief combined

For the love of a horse by Max Evans( Book )

3 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 113 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his eighty-plus years, Max Evans has known, owned, ridden, and been thrown by quite a number of horses. In For the Love of a Horse, Evans shares his favorite horse stories for all to enjoy. As Max explains, "I wanted a wide range of adventures from another time, with different horses, of different breeds, and a sense of history of those special days." Max begins with his first horse, Cricket, which he received when he was four years old. At the age of ten, he helped with a horse-drive from far southeast New Mexico, through west Texas, and on to the final destination in Guymon, Oklahoma. Later, PDQ was a horse that seemed very gentle and laid-back, until someone rode him. And then there was Molly, who liked to fly through and around obstacles on coyote hunts. Includes some autobiographical details, stories based on true events
