    1. The movie Broken Arrow (1950) was based on this novel. It was the first Hollywood movie which didn't portray America's indigenous people as interlopers and savages.

    3. Totally unexpectedly LOVED this book. I was sucked in from the first sentence. In a nutshell, this is a fictional telling of the story of Cochise, last great chief of the Apaches.

    7. Fred Freakoutski | 1 comments I like Ellen Melly, too. Some other good ones are Jim Stiles' book on Moab, Gretel Ehrlich "Solice in Open Spaces", William Kitteridge-Hole in the Sky, Ivan Doig-This House of Sky, Andrew Garcia-Tough Trip Through Paradise (as funny as Monkey Wrench but way different), Joy Harjo-How We Became Human, Mary Clearman Blew-All But The Waltz, and John Rember-Traplines. I hope this helps you get started down your own path of western writers.
