"[Will James, a] western author and artist, was born Joseph Ernest Nephtali Dufault in St. Nazaire de Acton, Quebec, Canada, the son of Jean Dufault and Josephine (maiden name unknown). When the Dufault family moved to Montreal, he attended a Catholic school and his father ran a hotel, in which the boy heard stories of trappers that he later used to fabricate parts of his Lone Cowboy: My Life Story...Lone Cowboy, his partly faked autobiography, hoodwinked the vast American buying public, and even his wife, and was a 1930 selection of the Book-of-the-Month Club. (Its dishonesty was not exposed until 1967.) Although he wrote eighteen more books, James slowly lost his self-assurance, sense of well-being, and artistic inspiration. He constantly feared being found out as a prevaricating autobiographer." (American National Biography). Howes. Streeter. HBS 67870. $5,000
