When the West Was Young | [Fredrick R. Becholdt]

When the West Was Young

They have been romanticized and glorified in the movies and TV, but these are perhaps more accurate portrayals of Wyatt Earp and his contemporaries. Published in 1923, Fredrick R. Beckholdt bases most of these stories upon research and interviews with old timers who witnessed many events portrayed here. Becholdt's portrayal of of the outlaws, hostile Indians, cowboys, gamblers, cold blooded killers, prospectors, and lawmen who inhabited the Wild West is riveting.

    Story
    "Really bad book all around."
    What would have made When the West Was Young better?

    The wording was flowery and hard to follow. It could have been because of the reader was so bad. Hard to tell.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Fredrick R. Becholdt? Why or why not?

    No. I think I'll look for additionol stories that have not been told a thousand times before. In addition, some of the facts stated in this book have already been disproved.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of John Michaels?

    A six year old could have presented more inflection is his voice to emphasize and convey some of the exciting parts of the book. Maybe a slight pause when you reach a period at the end of a sentence would help.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    Dosome research into less known characters. Bring us stories we have not heard before.
