"The Hollywood Posse: The Story of A Gallant Band of Horsemen Who Made Movie History"

by Diana Serra Cary (University of Oklahoma Press, 1996, 276 pages.)

Mrs. Cary has an insight into the subject that possibly no one else today has. Her father was a cowboy stuntman who doubled for Tom Mix and worked from the 'teens almost until his death in 1962. But there's more than just being a stuntman - for these men, it was a way of life that, when the west "died," the movies allowed them to continue. They were definitely a "breed apart." Great insights into early movie -making. The tale is sometimes sad, sometimes humorous. Certainly a book that needed to be written and one that needs to be read.
