Synopsis: Having lost wife and child, Josey Wales heads west from Missouri with his Cherokee friend Lone Watie and then, joined by an Indian woman and an old white woman and her granddaughter, moves southward to Texas.

Review: Josey Wales is so fast he guns down three men facing him before one of them can clear leather. This wild yarn masquerades as a true story - but the hero, folks, is not even listed in J.R. Nash's encyclopedia Bloodletters and Badmen. Even so, dialogue and detail have the unshaven authenticity of a WANTED poster. Just before the Civil War, Josey's wife and son are burned to death in Missouri by pillagers. During the War, he is a guerrilla, raping and raiding indiscriminately, and by mid-novel he has killed 35 men and is being pursued for the 7500-dollar robbery of a Federal paymaster. Texas-bound, he falls in with Lone Watie, an elderly Cherokee, and an outcast Cheyenne woman, Little Moonlight. Singlehandedly killing a whole gang of Comancheros (guys who sell firewater and firearms to Comanches), he rescues a buxom miss and her grandmother and decides to set up housekeeping with them. When their little ranch-to-be is threatened by a huge Comanche war party, he rides out to meet the Indians. . .alone. . . . Almost in double-vision, as if one were watching a kung fu epic at the same time. Or Clint Eastwood, who's already bought this property, since impossible odds make great fun. --Kirkus Reviews

Book Description Delacorte Press/Eleanor Friede, New York, 1975. Hardcover. Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good Plus. First Thus. New York: Delacorte Press/Eleanor Friede, 1975. Originally published as "The Rebel Outlaw" in 1973; this is a Very Good copy of the Second Printing, in a Very Good Plus dustjacket. This was the basis for one of Clint Eastwood's greatest films. "The Outlaw Josey Wales." The author, Forest Carter (pseudonym for Asa Earl Carter, d. 1979), has attained some notoriety over his history as a member of the Ku Klux Klan and the many fabrications to his life story. Perhaps as a consequence of this, his publications have become uncommon.Tan paper-covered boards that simulate leather, with gilt lettering on the spine. Clean text; ; 206 pages. Very bright and fresh, and would be a Fine copy if a previous-owner had not used cello tape at some point; residue marks remain on the covers and endpapers; also, there is residue on the FFEP where a label has been removed. The dustjacket, however, is excellent: unclipped, and with light edgewear and some creasing to the front flap. Quercus notes that the bio blurb on the rear cover relates the bogus story that Carter used in his persona/avatar as "Little Tree." In an archival plastic protector. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. First Thus. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good Plus. Seller Inventory # 002555
