Not really, no. Wizard & Glass constitutes the bulk of what we see of Roland's past, at least in the rest of the DT books themselves. But there are tales of Roland's past elsewhere: the Little Sisters of Eluria, a short story available in Everything's Eventual, takes place before "Gunslinger", but it doesn't go all the way back to his youth. Good little story, though, and more of Roland is always a good thing. The new Dark Tower book, "the Wind Through the Keyhole", will feature Roland telling a tale of his and Cuthbert's past too. Comes out in April. Besides that, the Marvel comics series spends considerable time dealing with Roland's past. It starts with his challenging of Cort, recaps Wizard & Glass, and fills in the gaps between it and "the Gunslinger".
