Mild wear to spine caps and letting a bit dulled but a clean and attractive copy with an unusual presentation.In 1916 Charles and Nancey Russell adopted their only child and named him Jack Cooper Russell. Jack was only 10 years old when his father died and soon thereafter his mother, Nancy Russell, moved them both to Southern California. Jack was to be a disappointment to Nancy, apparently a very hard to please woman, as he had no interest in art at all. After spending one year at USC he got married and joined the army. He then chose a career in construction and spent 20 years building freeways across the arid west. He retired to a gtrailer park in Oceanside, California and never wrote a memoir. This book is from the library of noted Western artist William F. Reese with hsi estate stamp on the front pastedown. Bookseller Inventory # 73431
