Return with us to yesteryear, when cowboys were cowboys and gunslingers lurked around every corner. Today that colorful period continues to resonate in the collective imagination of red-blooded Americans every-where - and now we have ""True West"", which illustrates, in hundreds of full-color illustrations, how America's mass media stamped that vision so indelibly on our collective unconscious over the past century, into today.Boasting hundreds of rare and colorful movie posters, pulp magazines, comic books, comic strips, television memorabilia, advertisements, paperback books, record album jackets, toys, and clothing, ""True West"" covers such hugely popular television series as Gunsmoke, The Lone Ranger, and Bonanza, along with classic western novels, including ""Shane"", ""The Searchers"", ""Welcome to Hard Times"", and that epic of all epics, ""Lonesome Dove"". It also bows to the icons who ruled the silver screen - Tom Mix, Gene Autry, Roy Rogers, John Wayne, and Clint Eastwood, to name a few.And what would the Wild West be without an accompanying soundtrack? ""True West"" reproduces the sublime album covers and sheet music that served up classic odes like ""Streets of Laredo"" and ""Cool Water,"" narrative ballads like ""El Paso"" (with Marty Robbins bedecked in his black gunfighter togs on the cover!), and ""High Noon.
