From Library Journal:

Film historian Everson coauthored with George Fenin The Western: From Silents to the Seventies (1973. o.p.), but his latest work is a revision of his Pictorial History of the Western Film (Carol Pub. Group, 1971). He explodes horse kissing and "they went thataway" myths and explains why heroines had no moms. Silents, series, serials, B-Westerns, and director John Ford are properly analyzed, but the past 40 years suffer coverage gaps. Neither The Magnificent Seven (1960), The Professionals (1966), nor large-scale B-movies like Little Big Horn (1951) or The Tall Texan (1953) are discussed. Only two of James Stewart's seven gritty Fifties Westerns are examined. Director William Witney gets more play than John Sturges or Anthony Mann. The price is right, but Brian Garfield's Western Films ( LJ 10/1/82) must remain the cornerstone of one's collection.
