1 Carter, Forest Gone to Texas
New York Delacorte Press/Eleanor Friede 1975 0440045657 / 9780440045656 First Thus Hardcover Very Good Very Good Plus 
New York: Delacorte Press/Eleanor Friede, 1975. Originally published as "The Rebel Outlaw" in 1973; this is a Very Good copy of the Second Printing, in a Very Good Plus dustjacket. This was the basis for one of Clint Eastwood's greatest films. "The Outlaw Josey Wales." The author, Forest Carter (pseudonym for Asa Earl Carter, d. 1979), has attained some notoriety over his history as a member of the Ku Klux Klan and the many fabrications to his life story. Perhaps as a consequence of this, his publications have become uncommon.Tan paper-covered boards that simulate leather, with gilt lettering on the spine. Clean text; ; 206 pages. Very bright and fresh, and would be a Fine copy if a previous-owner had not used cello tape at some point; residue marks remain on the covers and endpapers; also, there is residue on the FFEP where a label has been removed. The dustjacket, however, is excellent: unclipped, and with light edgewear and some creasing to the front flap. Quercus notes that the bio blurb on the rear cover relates the bogus story that Carter used in his persona/avatar as "Little Tree." In an archival plastic protector. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Thus. Hard Cover. Very Good/Very Good Plus. Dust jacket present. First Edition.

Albuquerque University of New Mexico 1986 0826308791 / 9780826308795 First Thus. Paperback Fine No Jacket Katherine Porter 
Albuquerque: University of New Mexico, 1986. "A True Story" of a Cherokee youth by Forest Carter (pseudonym for Asa Earl Carter, d. 1979), that is now regarded as a fabrication. Foreword by Rennard Strickland. Cover illustration by Katherine Potter. Once an incredibly popular book, controversy errupted in the early 1990's with charges that Carter had once been a member of the Ku Klux Klan, and perhaps was not Native American at all. This is a Fine copy of the First Softbound Edition Thus. This copy is in unread, As New condition and is still in the shrinkwrap shipping plastic. Whatever the truth of the matter, Carter was a talented writer who was also responsible for the character Josey Wales, made into an iconic Clint Eastwood movie. An interesting read and now uncommon in collectible condition. Size: 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall. First Thus.. Soft Cover. Fine/No Jacket. Illus. by Katherine Porter. First Edition.
