Navajo Canyon   

      F388  

Doubleday 1952

A Double D Western – Very Good book with light edge wear, touch of slant at top of spine and slight page edge soiling and dusting, in a Good jacket that has rubbing and soiling on the mostly white jacket, edge wear, sun fade on spine and a small ½ x Ό inch chip at top of spine not affecting any lettering, some foxing on verso of jacket. This copy inscribed – For Bondi De Toth - Sincerely Tom.  This is possibly an association to Andre De Toth who directed many B level western movies (his most famous movie was based on The Cabinet of Dr. Bondi) and this may have been a nickname, or one of his many children. This is a historical novel involving the relocation of the Navajo to eastern New Mexico and has Kit Carson as an important character. Quite scarce title.

Boyer, Glenn G. I Married Wyatt Earp Longmeadow Press 1994 First edition 1st printing thus, the Longmeadow Press reprint of the book originally published by University of Arizona Press. Subtitled "The Recollections of Josephine Sarah Marcus Earp" and supposedly a non-fiction account gathered and edited by Boyer. Now associated with controversy, since the edited documents appear to have been faked and thus this appears to be actually a fictional account. Book and dust jacket are NF with minor edge wear and book appears unread.
