Charles M. Russell.
Charles M. Russell, by Carol Clark, Curator of Paintings at the Amon Carter Museum in Fort Worth, Texas, is one of those books that is of value as a research work because of its graphics. Actually, it is primarily a picture book. Although the text within its pages is interesting, it deals with Russell's art and the great painter's interpretation of the events he portrayed, along with a bit of background for each of the 18 illustrations (17 in full color) represented. For black powder and living history buffs, this book's true value is found in the accurate portrayal of clothing, guns and gear of cowboys, hunters, Indians, explorers, and other frontier figures Russell painted so well. This 10x13-inch softcover book is printed on high quality paper and will provide the reader with much interesting information through these paintings. Priced at $10 plus $3 for shipping and handling, this book is certainly worth consideration for those interested in the American West and Charlie Russell's art.
