I was up at my Pa's house in Fountain Hills for Thanksgiving and low and behold I spy the new issue of Phoenix magazine with the title Wild West and some hardcase cowpokes on the cover. Phoenix magazine is a rather tony publication to be featuring such a subject. When I saw that the three men on the cover were Frenchy Marin, Tap Duncan and Bill Smith working cattle in Hackberry, Arizona, I had one thought....Boze.
Now I don't know if it was a coincidence or not, but, Bob is quoted in an article called, "Hold Your Piece" about the folks in Arizona being well heeled through it's history.
Altough it is a rather generic history of the early days of Arizona, it does have some great photos, good enough that I lifted my old man's copy.
