A meticulously researched history of the western film that is now ranked with "Shane" and "The Searchers." Much of the book's focus is on Sam Peckinpah, the movie's visionary, eccentric director. It was a labor of love that had been incubating in Peckinpah's mind for many years and, after the disaster of "Major Dundee,"his professional future rested upon its success. Much to the displeasure of Warner Brothers, he insisted upon assembling his own crew and hiring a cast of actors who, with the exception of William Holden, were not box-office draws. A fascinating look at the evolution of a landmark film and its brilliant creator. ~ Reviewed by Alden Graves
