The Real Book About the Texas Rangers, Allen, Allyn
3 Allen, Allyn The Real Book About the Texas Rangers
B0007E5WLG HARDCOVER Used; Very Good 
Garden City Books, Garden City, 1952. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Dust Jacket Condition: Very Good. Jacket protected by BroDart clear mylar cover. C. L. Hartman (illustrator) (illustrator). Book Club Edition. An action packed, colorful appreciation of bravery of these lean-jawed soldiers of fortune. The Texas Rangers, with a history ripe in adventure, anecdote and personalities, has been a rich reservoir for Western material. Here is a lively account of some of the high spots since its founding in the early 1800's. Begun as a volunteer organization to protect settlers from Indian raids, the Texas Rangers came to be considered a Texas institution, whether in time of war, or in periods when internal war was waged against cattle thieves, bandits, killers and outlaws. This is the story, too, of famous Rangers, -- Armstrong, noted for the deadly persistence with which he tracked down the outlaws; McDonald, who when told he could not handle a mob single-handed is supposed to have answered, ""Well, you aint got but one mob, have you?""; Tumlinson, McCulloch, McNelly, on down to the 20th century Ranger Frank Hamer.

19 David S Hooker Somewhere Under the Moon: Dreaming the Great World in Beaumont, Texas (Signed)
Clockface Books 1900 0999070002 / 9780999070000 First Edition TRADE PAPERBACK New 
Clockface Books, 2017. Paperback. Book Condition: New. (Signed) Signed at Fleur Fine Books on Nivember 11, 2017 during a Meet & Greet Event. A personal memoir of seven decades of moviegoing and of how movies have shaped the life of one discerning moviegoer. Eclectic, quirky, eccentric, and sometimes frankly sentimental, this book explores how movies in a certain time and a certain place reached one receptive mind. David Hooker chronicles his journey from wonderstruck child to adolescent movie nerd to cognizant adulthood to bemused advanced age, ruminating upon such diverse subjects as the vampire film, roadshow spectacles, art films, Saturday matinees, and the sheer joy of moviegoing itself, along with forays into such related topics as the Shock Theatre rage of the late 'fifties, meetings with celebrities, drive-ins, the rise and fall of local movie theatres in his home town of Beaumont, Texas, music and opera, the seasons, the history of cinema, the aesthetics of refineries, the vicissitudes of moviemaking at the local level, the essence of John Wayne, the exhilaration of seeing classic films revived on the big screen, and the unappreciated glory of clocktowers. The author lays out just how movies have paved the way for his growing appreciation of Shakespeare, Gilbert and Sullivan, opera, and untold treasures of the arts and of the sheer joy of life. A first-person account of life in a small American city in the mid-twentieth century tempered and heightened by movies and late-night magic-lantern fantasies, Somewhere Under the Moon recounts the unfolding of the life of the imagination of a self-confessed unremarkable individual who drifted more or less by circumstances into an academic profession and found that position marvelously enriched by his early filmgoing memories which gave him an endless resource of life experience to share with a rising generation whose influences and stimuli are very different. More a collection of essays and vignettes than a continuous narrative, Somewhere Under the Moon is an accessible work, with the kind of surprising insights that inevitably emerge over the course of an introspective life. The author compares his early cinematic visions of life in "the Great World" with his experience of its unfolding in time, recounting his travels in Paris, Prague, and other European capitals. For David Hooker, each variety of experience enriches the other -- the voyage of the spectator in the movie theatre and the literal voyage of the older man on the plane and the train -- all of which is grist for the mill that he brings back to his students in Beaumont, Texas -- as legitimate a region of the Great World as any other.
