Synopsis

King of the Cowboys, Queen of the West Roy Rogers and Dale Evans by Raymond E. White

For more than sixty years, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans personified the romantic, mythic West that Americans cherished. Blazing a trail through every branch of the entertainment industry - radio, film, recordings, television, and even comic books - the couple capitalized on their attractive personas and appealed to the nation's belief in family values, an independent spirit, and community. Raymond E. White presents these two celebrities in the most comprehensive and inclusive account to date. Part narrative, part reference, this impeccably researched, highly accessible survey spans the entire scope of Rogers's and Evans's careers and highlights their place in twentieth-century American popular culture. In a dual biography, he shows how Rogers and Evans carefully husbanded their public image and - of particular note - incorporated their Christian faith into their performances. Testifying to both the breadth and the longevity of their careers, the book includes radio logs, discographies, filmographies, and comicographies that will delight historians and collectors alike.

Reviews

This is a book that every Roy Rogers and Dale Evans fan should have in their collection. It contains Raymond White's informative and extensive research and is a must read for those who want to learn more about the King and Queen of the West. - Dick Baxter, Dale Evans's manager
