Cowgirl: A Home on the Wyoming Range by Lynn Parr (£23.00)Publisher: The Wild Wood Press — 2005Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0955018404]Condition: Very Good. Leans slightly. Upper wrapper slighty curled. Text complete, clean and tight. Description: First in this, paperback, edition. Illustrated by way of: Black and White Photographs;

From the cover: “Being the wife of a Wyoming cowboy had sounded so exciting: living in a little log cabin, eating wild game, riding the range. But no one had mentioned wind-blasted, manure-spattered days beginning at 5 am, or dragging home your o\vn meat on the hoof. Or living in a dilapidated trailer house infested with creepy crawlies and smelly adolescent cowboys because your first marital home was also the bunkhouse for the single men…

Cowgirl describes the years that Lynn Parr spent living and working on modern cattle ranches in the Cowboy State Season by season, Cowgirl documents the ranching year, its tasks bound up with the landscape, the weather and the abundant wildlife; while the neighbours play out their own sketches and dramas, and the British girl tries to adjust to a home on the range.

is also a portrait of a state that has largely escaped the 21st century, where everything you ever heard about the Wild West actually took place — and where the past meets the present against one of the grandest backdrops on Earth.”

Billy Lynn's Long Halftime Walk by Ben Fountain (£12.00)Publisher: Canongate — 2012Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. [ISBN: 0857864386]Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. Dust wrapper slighlty pulled at the head of the upper panel otherwise a very well presented copy. Description: From the cover: “Nineteen-year-old Billy Lynn is home from war.

Back in Texas, he has become a celebrity. A Fox News crew filmed Billy and the rest of Bravo squad defeating Iraqi insurgents in a ferocious firefight. Now Billy is a decorated soldier and Bravo’s three minutes of extreme bravery under fire is a YouTube sensation.

Seizing on this PR gift, the Bush administration has sent the surviving members of Bravo on a nationwide ‘Victory Tour’ to reassure the folks at home. Today, during the final hours of the tour, they arrive at Texas Stadium as guests of honour as the Dallas Cowboys take on the Chicago Bears in a nationally broadcast Thanksgiving Day game.

Ben Fountain’s remarkable novel follows Billy and his fellow Bravos through a climactic afternoon, as they mix with the rich and powerful, endure the politics and affections of their fellow citizens, aspire to sex and marriage with the famous Cowboys cheerleaders, share centre stage with Destiny’s Child during the halftime extravaganza and attempt to close a movie deal with the help of a veteran Hollywood producer. They will learn hard truths about love and death, family and friendship, duty and honour. Tomorrow, they must go back to war.

Tender and full of humanity, this is a wickedly funny and urgent novel about a young man, the citizens who sent him to war, the family he left behind and the era that let it happen. In Billy Lynn, Ben Fountain has created a new American hero for our times.”

[ISBN: 0709050364]Condition: Very Good.Description: From the cover: “Heading alone for the town of Coldheart, on the sniff of a peacekeeping job, Braid found an unlikely companion in Rachel, one of a struggling, beleaguered farm family travelling by wagon through dangerous country. In the grim, dark and violent town, Braid struck a bargain, yet recognized at once, as did the girl, that her presence was as unwelcome as it had been unexpected. Yet the town needed Braid as much as he needed work, and as he set about bringing law to its lawless streets, the disapproval and resentments were allowed to simmer. Then came the attempt on the Coldheart bank, and when the smoke of the fierce gun-battle had cleared, Braid and his girl faced one final challenge.”Notes: Size: 7¾" x 4¾". Pictorial boards.

The West by Jon E Lewis (£6.50)Publisher: Sienna — 1998Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0752528246]Condition: Good. An acceptable reading copy with clear signs of previous ownership and shelf wear.Description: From the cover: “The story of the American West is one of the epics of mankind. This exhilarating account is at once a complete anecdotal history and a compendium of western lore. It shows what life on the frontier was really like, and portrays the brave, unpredictable and sometimes violent men and women who explored, fought over and finally tamed a continent. Jon E. Lewis vividly depicts the pioneers, the onrush of the cattle barons, the coming of the lawmen and the tragic demise of the Plains Indians. Heroes and villains — including Sitting Bull, Doc Holliday, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, Crazy Horse and Custer — are often revealed in a startling new light, and a host of minor characters are rescued from obscurity. One, the Californian gunfighter Walter J. Crow, killed more men in ‘gundowns’ than Wyatt Earp, Billy the Kid, Jesse James and Wild Bill Hickok combined. The book pays full homage to the part played by women and African-Americans, and includes a mass of intriguing and fascinating detail — from how Montana cowboys warmed their horses’ bits to the words of the Navajo medicine chants.”Notes: Size: B Format (Approx. 5¼" x 7¾"). 528 pages.

Gently rubbed at the edges of the spine and wrappers.Description: Reprint. From the cover: “The most famous Western of all — the story of Shane, a man determined to save the Wyoming homesteaders from ruin even if he destroyed himself in the process.

I knew he could have been none of these… he was Shane.’”Notes: Size: A Format (7" x 4½"). 191 pages.
