Most Helpful Customer Reviews
I remember flipping through this book a while back. Maybe 10 years ago and didn't buy iy. YET!!! Some of the content stayed with me. Interesting. I was always impressed with E.C and D.C. George Evans artwork. So I've bought the book and am waiting on its' arrival. My question to any of you that buy this series of the Strange and Kooky book series is this. What other titles in this series features George Evans cartooning like Ty Cobb? What is the Ty Cobb story in or anything by George Evans in these books of strangeness in? Thanx mates.
I love the Factoid "Big Book of..." series. The days of the wild west are always interesting to learn about, and the variety of artwork keeps you engaged.
This collection of black and white entertaining comic-style renderings of vignettes about the West is really well put together. Most of the stories concern actual events from the times of Manifest Destiny to Turner's "End of the Frontier", though there are few ghost/supernatural stories set in a western setting for the reader looking for items of a "weird" bent.
Note: Everything included in the collection is backed with bibliographic citations. Thus this collection with judicious use could be used as a supplement to a study of American History.
