Author C. Jack Lewis spent 25 years in this world of low-budget Westerns, and here he portrays the human side of the industry through the many people with whom he came into contact as he worked his way from film to film. Highly personal, filled with rare glimpses of a life that lives only in the memory of a few, this narrative is a nostalgic memoir of a bygone time, of those who shared life on Poverty Row_and of the hard work, failures, successes, and dreams made or broken. Liberal use of photos helps readers identify the faces they have seen on their television screens in the reruns of these pictures still making the rounds. A must-read for students of film and popular culture_great for fans of Westerns as well.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A rare first-hand account of an unjustly forgotten era in horse opera history. Told with warmth and affection, it should delight B-western aficionados. * Film Review *
Named One of "THE BEST ANECDOTAL" Books on Cinema * Classic Images *
Highly personal, filled with rare glimpses of a life that lives only in the memory of a few, this narrative is a nostalgic memoir of a bygone time....written in Lewis' easy, conversational style, and a center section has 40 marvelous photos of the old sagebrush stars. Some of the anecdotes are hilarious, and we also learn which of the actors were real cowboys. -- J. B. Wood * The New Gun Week *
A wealth of delightful nostalgia and memoirs...a fun trip down memory lane. * Leatherneck *
