If you don’t like feeling indebted to people, don’t write a book.
Throughout this project (which is a ways from being completed), I’ve kept a list of those I want to thank in the book. I finally figured, why not thank them here, now?
First, of course, a big thanks goes to my wife Jennifer. She’s helped out in a thousand ways, the biggest being helping me make the time to write. My best friend James Graham has provided encouragement, an author photo and some much-needed nudging along the way. You two have more confidence in me and this book than I do.
The following people, listed in alphabetical order, have provided assistance with research, come through with a movie I was looking for, proofread something, offered up some kind of insight, and on and on. I’m sure that by the time 50 Westerns From The 50s sits on anybody’s bookshelf (or reposes in an eReader), this list’ll probably be twice as long.

Thanks to you all.
