How are you? the other day I was watching Charles Bronson and jack Palance in "Chato's Land", remebering you...I started "Where the Rivers run North"...I think it compares with the best of Larry McMurtry..Still haven't finished it..Its quite simply a terrific tapestry of epic detail!
Wecome to the Movie Lovers Group. Hope to see you as an active participant in the group; it's always great to hear from new voices. Just FYI, if your interested....last month's group movie was "Miracle on 34th Street" and this month's group movie is "The Maltese Falcon". If you've seen any one of them (or both) please feel free to post your comments. March's Group Movie Discussion will be on Asian Films and we will discuss "Three Times". We also have a recurring thread "Movies You've Watched During the Month". Please feel free to post the movies you've seen on the small and big screen and your ratings.
Have a wonderful day.
I received your book today. Man! I'm absolutely thrilled. I just cannot thank you enough. I plan to get started on it this weekend.
yesterday, I was watching Ford's "The Searchers" again. What a film! .. and so was the book by Alan LeMay.
I just hope I can meet you in the near future.We'll have a Western retro..that'll be something,
Thanks for posting, Sam. I have yet to actually meet Craig in person, but he very kindly offered to participate via telephone in our library's book group discussion of the first in his Walt Longmire series. The members really enjoyed "meeting" the author and discussing various aspects of THE COLD DISH with him!
Your own book WHERE THE RIVERS RUN NORTH looks very intriguing and I'm going to try to get a copy for our library. We have a number of readers who look for historical fiction set in the American West and I like to purchase items for them whenever possible. One question: I understand there is [unavoidable, given the topic] violence; is this strictly an adult-level book or would it be suitable for mature teens as well? (So I know how to market it ...)
Writing a book as a rookie effort is great, What a feat!! It sounds like it would be a good read. I use to have a nice sorrel. I was leasing her but had to give her up when my basement had major flooding. The waterproofing was too expensive. One of these days I'll look into getting another horse.
Currently, I am pursuing a course in journalism at the ASIAN COLLEGE OF JOURNALISM in Chennai. So my address for correspondence would be:

Your story seems to be a wonderful counterpoint to "How the West Was Won". That one had a great cast which included James Stewart, Gregory Peck , Richard Widmark,Henry Fonda , George Peppard and so on.
I was on the lookout for "Return" by Berger, but couldn't find it in any of the used book exhibitions here in India. But I would love to read your book; please do tell me where I might access it. Also, who do you have in mind to star if the film is made.Incidentally, I was also on the lookout for Will Henry's "Mackenna's Gold".
The film's name was "My name is Nobody" (1973) directed by Tonino Valerii with a story by Sergio Leone and featuring a quirky music score by Ennio Morricone (who else!).
talking about American Westerns of the 1950's, "Vera Cruz"(1954) directed by Robert Aldrich and starring Gary Cooper and Burt Lancaster is the one which is distinct in the sense that it was one of the precursors of the "Spaghettis" and Peckinpah's "The Wild Bunch".
thanks so much. At last a Western fan with whom I can talk. There is another Eli Wallach "Spaghetti Western" you might like to try. It is called "Ace High (1969)". It also stars other Spaghetti Western luminaries like Terence Hill (They Call me Trinity).
I saw your post in historical fiction. Lonesome Dove, Centennial, and Gettysburg were all movies. I gues Centennial was a mini series as was Lonesome Dove. I think Lonesome Dove with Robert Duvall was captured perfectly on film. What do you think? The other two did not transfer as well.
