Some of the most devoted reviewers of forgotten books on this blog have been devotees and writers of Westerns. Their passion for westerns is being thwarted somewhat by the reluctance of bookstores and libraries to carry these books with the same faithfulness they carry other genres. Please consider inquiring of your local bookstore or library whether they stock Westerns.
In my childhood, about half of the TV shows were westerns. With the demise of Deadwood, there is no regular Western series on now. I watched quite a few of them as a child, including Annie Oakley, the only one starring a woman to the best of my memory. Although I don't read many westerns, I see most of the Western movies that come along. The reason is--well, okay I see almost every movie--but also most Westerns seem to be done pretty well. Better than the average comedy or romance lately.

I checked my local library and they stock 388 westerns. I wonder if that's low, average or high.
