Will James – Nevada Magazine




Just a day after posting a post on Will James, famous western artist and former resident of Washoe Valley, circa 1920-30, we went to the Reno Friends of the Library book sale last Sunday and found this. We had checked out all the books and Andy was still looking so I killed some time looking through the mags and was pleasantly surprised to see this cover. Gwendolyn Clancy discovered the author of her favorite childhood western books lived right here and did a wonderful article on James’ life and also did a half hour video documentary of which I have to get a copy. I also have to read his award winning book written in Washoe Valley called, “Smoky, The Cow Horse”. Supposedly it has never been out of print. This issue is October, 1990.
