The Round-Up : A Pictorial History of Western Movie and Television Stars Through the Years

by Donald R. Key
Television Westerns Episode Guide : All United States Series, 1949-1996

by Harris M., III Lentz
Recommended as a "best all around" and because of the 300 pictures. A nice nostalgia trip. The Bible of TV Western episode guides. Big, authoritative, indispensible.

Son of the Morning Star

by Evan S. Connell
I See by Your Outfit :
Historic Cowboy Gear of the Northern Plains

by Tom Lindmier, Steve Mount, Steven R. Mount
My favorite of the Custer books. Although a bit disjoined, it gives an unbiased and broad view of Custer and the Battle of the Little Big Horn. The movie version is very tru to the book and stars Gary Cole. Want to see authentic cowboy gear? This book is well researched and accurate.

Undaunted Courage: Meriwether Lewis, Thomas Jefferson, and the Opening of the American West

by Stephen Ambrose
Women's Diaries of the Westward Journey (Studies in the Life of Women)

by Lillian Schlissel
America's preeminent military historian, Stephen Ambrose, travelled the route himself and draws heavily on the journals of both explorers. There are many books of this type, but this one remains my favorite,

The Writer's Guide to Everyday Life in the Wild West (Writer's Guide to Everyday Life)

by Candy Vyvey Moulton
Company of Heroes : My Life As an Actor in the John Ford Stock Company

by Harry Carey, Jr
What they ate, what they wore, language they used...it's all here. An excellent resource. I love this book. His tells a great tale with a huge dose of humor. This is a man who worked with all of the greats!

Ordeal by Hunger :
The Story of the Donner Party

by George Rippey Stewart
Crazy Horse (Penguin Lives)

by Larry McMurtry
Lots of print on this story, but Stewart manages to avoid the sensational and retain the humanity. A small book, but McMurtry does a fine job of it. Besides, any man who will criticize Stephen Ambrose can't be all bad.
