Heroes of the Wild West
Kit Carson, Davy Crockett, Wild Bill Hickok
Daniel Boone, Buffalo Bill
Description: One of the cooler sets that Easton Press has produced and normally quite scarce. These are some of the biggest explorers and characters of early American foundation. Whether it's the extraordinary heroics of those like Kit Carson and Daniel Boone, the defining of the old west for history by Buffalo Bill, or the gun slinging of Wild Bill Hickok, these are foundational stories to our American Experience. The volumes also discuss many of the characters surrounding these personalities like Chief Rain in the Face, or John C Fremont. They were some of my favorite books to check-out of the Bookmobile when I was a little kid and I have no doubt these will be a favorite of your family also. The raised or 3D image on the cover was rarely done by
Easton and only on a few collections such as Ernest Hemingway Library and The Wizard of Oz. If you have not started collecting this set yet, This is not the easiest set to collect separately as some titles are quite hard and go for big individual prices. I recommend buying the complete set unless you really enjoy the challenge and the time collecting.
