About the Author:

Max Brand is the best-known pen name of Frederick Faust, creator of Dr. Kildare, Destry, and many other fictional characters popular with readers and viewers worldwide. He wrote for a variety of audiences in many genres. His enormous output, totaling approximately thirty million words or the equivalent of 530 ordinary books, covered nearly every field: crime, fantasy, historical romance, espionage, westerns, science-fiction, adventure, animal stories, love, war, big business, big medicine, and fashionable society. Eighty motion pictures [most notably Destry Rides Again (1939) starring James Stewart and Marlene Dietrich and several Dr. Kildare films starring Lew Ayres and Lionel Barrymore] have been based on his work as well as three TV series (again, most notably Dr. Kildare starring Richard Chamberlain and Raymond Massey), radio programs, and a Broadway musical. His first Western, The Adopted Son, was published in 1917 and made into a motion picture of the same name.


Elmer Kelton is the author of over 40 novels. A native of Crane, Texas, his novel, THE GOOD OLD BOYS, was made into a 1995 TV movie starring Tommy Lee Jones for the TNT cable network. Kelton is a six time Spur Award winner, a four-time winner of the Western Heritage Award from the National Cowboy Hall of Fame, and was voted all-time best western author by the Western Writers of America.

 

 

Cotton Smith, a protégé of renowned Western writer Don Coldsmith, is the President of the Western Writers of America. He has received incredibly favorable feedback on his novels, including a 1998 Spur Award nomination for his debut novel. His stories of the West are praised for historical accuracy, unexpected plot twists and memorable characters. They are also enjoyed for their insightful descriptions of life of that era—and for their rousing adventure.
