[EAN: 9780882897233], Gebraucht, wie neu, [PU: Pelican Publishing, Gretna, Louisiana], TITLE IS "STARR TRACKS: BELLE AND PEARL STARR." A LOOK BEHIND THE MYTHS TO SEE TRUE STORY OF TWO MOST COLORFUL CHARACTERS IN AMERICA'S OLD WEST.FAMOUS AS "BANDIT QUEEN" WEST, STARR WAS PROUD HOT-TEMPERED WOMAN WHO WORE SIX-GUNS OVER HER VELVET SKIRTS ASSOCIATED WITH NOTORIOUS YOUNGER BROTHERS. DAUGHTER OPERATED BORDELLOS ARKANSAS, ACHIEVED ALMOST EVERY AMBITION - EXCEPT RESPECTABILITY SHE CRAVED., "J" ISBN: 0882897233 Title is Starr Tracks: Belle and Pearl Starr." First of all, Phillip Steele did a nice job of tracking down living decendants of Belle Starr, and actually turning up new information in the form of letters, photographs and family history. That's pretty impressive for a biography of someone who died in 1889 and had been the subject of much fictionalized and exaggerated press accounts that passed into history. Steele attempts to set the record straight while acknowledging that many important details of Belle Starr's life will never be known for certain. Unfortunately, the 100 page book (and the first 21 pages are preface, etc.) is simply too short. It almost seems like an outline. Steele could have used an editor to help push him to flesh out details, clarify information, and improve the writing and layout. With the new information he discovered, this could have been a substantial, definitive biography. But regardless, it is more than worthwhile, it does not give into baseless speculation, and it does not bore you -- you are left wanting to know more about the fascinating and tragic lives of Belle Starr and her children. This very handsome and sturdy book came a private, discrete collector. No conspicuous wear. This binding is tight; pages are clean and unmarked. There is NO underlining, tobacco odor or highlighting. A great copy with tight binding. You will not be disappointed. This book has the four absolute uppermost qualities we seek in books: 1) excellence in content, 2) literary quality, 3) appealing design, and 4) significance of contribution. Available for immediate shipping. You will not be disappointed.

In legend, Belle Starr was the famous "Bandit Queen" of Arkansas, Texas, and Oklahoma -- a dashing figure who robbed stagecoaches while clad in velvet skirts. Though she associated with the notorious Younger brothers and was accused of many crimes, Belle was in reality an honest woman whose pride and temper made her an object of suspicion. Her daughter Pearl achieved everything except the respectability she craved. Starr Tracks: Belle and Pearl Starr Steele, Phillip W., Pelican Publishing Company
