Notes from Texas : on writing in the Lone Star State by W. C Jameson( )

5 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 946 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"W. C. Jameson has compiled an assorted collection of essays by fourteen of the most prominent Texas writers through which he hopes to explore the following questions: "How did they accomplish their goals? Why did they choose the writing life? What influence did the history, lore, and culture of Texas play in their creative process?" While readily citing the "decidedly Texas flavor" in his own fiction, Jameson seeks to uncover the inspirations in other writers from both the expansive and rugged Texas terrain as well as the varied people therein."--BOOK JACKET
The ultimate chili cookbook : history, geography, fact, and folklore of chili by W. C Jameson( )

3 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 915 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Return of assassin John Wilkes Booth by W. C Jameson( )

6 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

That John Wilkes Booth assassinated President Abraham Lincoln has never been questioned. Extreme controversy and mystery, however, surround the flight of the assassin and his alleged death in a burning barn in Virginia. Recent research and the discovery of long-lost evidence, along with a critical analysis of existing history, has provided a basis for the contention that not only was Booth not killed in 1865, but he may well have lived another three decades in hiding. Furthermore, evidence strongly suggests that government authorities were aware that the man identified as John Wilkes Booth was not an actor, but a Confederate officer
Unsolved mysteries of the old West by W. C Jameson( )

7 editions published between 1999 and 2013 in English and held by 745 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Many relate to the death or disappearance of some of the best-known lawmen and outlaws in history, such as Billy the Kid, Buckskin Frank Leslie, John Wilkes Booth, The Catalina Kid, and Butch Cassidy. Others involve mysterious tales and legends of lost mines and buried treasures that have not been recovered-yet
Butch Cassidy : beyond the grave by W. C Jameson( Book )

6 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 541 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This well-researched biography of the life- and controversial death- of Robert LeRoy Parker, aka Butch Cassidy, is a journey across the late nineteenth American West as we follow Cassidy's exploits in Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah, where he made his name as a surprisingly affable outlaw. More importantly, this book answers the following question: did Butch Cassidy, noted outlaw of the American West, survive his alleged death at the hands of Bolivian soldiers in 1908 and return to friends and family in the United States? The evidence suggesting he did is impressive and not easily dismissed, but how he lived and which identity he assumed are still being debated
John Wilkes Booth : beyond the grave by W. C Jameson( Book )

4 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 513 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Leading the reader through a series of amazing coincidences and details, this book presents startling evidence that John Wilkes Booth, the assassin of President Lincoln, was never captured but escaped to live for decades, continue his acting career, marry, and have children. Compelling and revealing information in the form of papers and diaries has recently been found in private collections -- materials that provide greater insight into the events leading up to the assassination of Lincoln as well as details of the pursuit and capture of the man the government claimed was Booth. - Jacket flap

The Silver Madonna and Other Tales of America's Greatest Lost Treasures by W. C Jameson( Book )

"The twenty-four tales in this book are of the most famous lost treasures in America, from a two-foot statue reportedly made entirely of silver (the 'Madonna') and a cache of gold, silver, and jewelry that was rumored to also contain the first Bible in America to seventeen tons of gold its value equal to the treasury of a mid-sized nation buried somewhere in northwestern New Mexico. What makes these tales even more compelling is that none of these known-to-be-lost treasures have been discovered, although modern detecting technology has made them eminently discoverable."--Publisher description
