(After a quick count) this book features 73 paintings of the Old West owned by the Thomas Gilcrease Museum in Oklahoma. The reproductions are mostly very good (some a bit dark but it looks like the original paintings were like that, too) and each painting is accompanied by a page of text about the artist and the art (generally accurate but sometimes a bit weak on the history). It is easy to read, entertaining, and you can read a few pages a night and enjoy the art. I was lucky and found a like new hardcover in a used book store for only $20.00. I have also seen it in softcover (but it wasn't in good condition and that's why I didn't buy it). If you're into Western art this is a good book, but I wouldn't spend more than $20 like I did, and then only if the book is in excellent condition. While I have seen many of these paintings in other books that I already own, a few were new to me. Unfortunately the author died in 2002.
