Long John Dunn of Taos

Long John Dunn of Taos

(1959)
A novel by

 
This is the story of one of the West's most legendary characters, Long John Dunn of Taos, New Mexico, written by Max Evans, the acclaimed author of such Western classics as "The Rounders" and "Hi Lo Country". Ranchhand, jailbird, cattleman, gunslinger, rodeo cowboy, gambler, stage driver, miner, saloon keeper, entrepreneur - Long John Dunn was all of these and more. In an ancient city that has been home to dozens of memorable characters and historical personages - Padre Antonio Jose Martinez, Kit Carson, Mabel Dodge Lujan, and D. H. Lawrence, to name only a few, Long John Dunn may have been the most extraordinary Taoseno of them all. In the mid-1950s, when Dunn was in his nineties, he told the story of his remarkable, adventurous life to fellow Taoseno and close friend, Max Evans. It is a story not only of a man's life, but of the last wild and woolly days of the Old West as well. "Long John Dunn of Taos" is an indispensable addition to anyone's Western Americana bookshelf.
