Lightbulb Albuquerque- Local Publisher's Old West Trivia Book Wins Rave Reviews

OLD WEST TRIVIA BOOK
by Don Bullis
228 pages 32 photographs; 6x9
ISBN 978-1-890689-61-2 ($17.95)
Old West Trivia Book is in its second edition


Albuquerque- It looks like local publisher LPD Press may have a best seller on their hands in their new edition of "OLD WEST TRIVIA BOOK". LPD recently published a second edition of this book and it's selling very well in bookstores and in places like Amazon.com too.

The glamour and fascination of the Old West is brought to life in a new way in this interesting collection of facts and figures. Historic photographs tell stories of their own as the faces of such Old West characters as Geronimo, General Custer and the Unsinkable Molly Brown enliven the text. The scope and history of the Old West is highlighted in a way that is both factual and entertaining in this unique presentation that will appeal to anyone interested in the Old West and the people and places that made it happen. Author Don Bullis has spent his life covering the people and places of the Southwest as a small-town newspaper editor and as a deputy sheriff and town marshal. He has traveled extensively throughout the Western United States to gather the facts, figures, and photos that make up this collection.

In the July 5 issue of the Albuquerque Journal, the reviewer said...

"Old West trivia book revels in minutiae about the good, the bad and the ugly of life on the frontier. Bullis' book covers hundreds of ... famous and infamous individuals from the Old West in chapters on soldiers, Indians, cowboys, cattlemen, politicians, and literature. There's a newly added chapter on "Movie and Television of the Old West."

Other Reviews

A great source for trivia games or simple browsing. Presented in a question-and-answer format, with questions grouped in chapters by subject, the trivia ranges in topic from lawmen and outlaws, to Indians of the West and their chiefs, to wagon trains, boomtowns, women of the Old West, literature and art of the Old West, movies of the West, and much more.
