Richard S. Wheeler is one of the greats in the field of Western writing.  He's very kind and engaging.  This novel, along with his classics DODGING RED CLOUD and SAM HOOK (which are all autographed to me!) made me a Wheeler fan for life. 

Plus, he was the first person to ever send me a music tape that all the actual theme to "Rio Bravo" on it.  Not, "DeGuello", the cut-throat song (I was able to give that to HIM!), but the actual opening music to the classic John Wayne/Howard Hawks film.

Richard, I have the other song from the film that Ricky Nelson and Dean Martin sing, "My Rifle, My Pony and Me" - drop me a line if you want a copy!
