From the Dust Jacket: "In the image of the high plains drifter there is embodied the elemental spirit of the American character. And few have captured the essence of the relationship between the cowboy and the place that is the West as artist James Reynolds. His canvases are perhaps some of the most passionate and stirring ever to portray this mythical figure… James Reynolds -- considered a 'painter's painter' by his peers… In TRAILDUST, he provides… [a] fusion of Western images that art lovers have called a combination of Frederic Remington and Charles Russell... at once magnificent, lonely, proud, and poignant. James Reynolds's artistic talents and sensitivity to the cowboys, Indians, horses, cattle, and their landscape present a West that is as timeless as the subjects that dominate his images." This large, heavy book will require extra postage for Priority and International shipments (but only the standard charge for media mail). . First Printing of the First Edition. Oversize Hardcover. Fine condition/Fine dust jacket. Illus. by Reynolds, James (paintings). 156pp.

About About Books

About Books (Genny and Michael Winne, proprietors, formerly of Parsippany, New Jersey) has been selling rare and OP books since 1985. Besides book fairs and mail-order catalogues, long-time collectors and dealers will remember our lengthy For Sale ads in the Antiquarian Bookman and similar magazines. Our inventory of over 40,000 volumes is especially strong in the specialties listed, but contains fine books in a variety of other fields as well. Because most of our books are stored in protective boxes, rather than on shelves, they cannot be viewed as a whole. If you wish to visit us to examine specific titles, please provide 24 hours notice and we will make them available for your inspection. Phone calls to (702) 750-2722 are welcome, but please, only between the hours of 8am and 10pm (west coast time).
