TINTYPES IN GOLD by Joseph Henry Jackson


Email this review


Stories drawn from California's record of highwaymen, which, in view of the fresh impetus given authentic Westerns by the screen, should fit right into that market. There was Black Bart, the poet highwayman; there was Tom Bell, pioneer in organized stage robbery; there was Rattlesnake Dick, who worked out his spite against the world; there was the psalm singing Dick Fellows who couldn't sit a horse. Joe Jackson knows his California background, and has told the stories with zest. His growing popularity, through his national broadcast, should make not only this book, but his excellent travel books, sell generally.
