About this title


This biographical novel is a revealing look into the very colorful, larger-than-life Western silent-film superstar Tom Mix. The author demonstrates having done meticulous research by interviewing friends, family, and colleagues--contemporaries who knew Tom Mix intimately and paints a vivid sense of who he was. Mix is seemingly forgotten by many Americans, yet he truly was a superstar in every sense of the word. This is even more amazing given that media weren't anything near as high-tech and real-time-oriented as today. He was internationally known for doing most of his own amazing stunts and traveling with his own circus/Wild-West show. The author also reveals that Mix's personal life was no less colorful with: five ex-wives, a huge Hollwood mansion, a fleet of luxury cars and a propensity to drink. Yet he maintained a squeaky-clean, super-hero-like public image. Some of his movies are available online and are worth the look--especially when you realize they were done in an era of few special effects. This book will motivate you to get your hands on these films. "The Last Trail", "The Great K&A Train Robbery" and "Sky High" are great examples of surviving Tom Mix films.
