Western ebooks?

Anyone know if there are any Western ebooks in the ebook database on this website?

When you say "western" do you mean "cowboys and indians" type stuff?

Probably the most prolific author of out of copyright ones was Zane Grey - PG has a couple of dozen of his. I've not looked to see if any have been nicely formatted for the Reader - if they haven't, please do them yourself and post them here for others to enjoy.

I remembered someone mentioning James Fenimore Cooper and I even found a book by him here.

Another Western writer I remember from my childhood is Mayne Reid, but I don't see any of his books uploaded.
Here's a site which has a few in HTML, html2lrf should work on them, I guess.

The Headless Horseman, which is probably his most famous book, doesn't seem to available online.

The rest of the PG Western Bookshelf should be available on Feedbooks in the upcoming weeks.

There's already 57 Western books available and if you need to make a choice, you can take a loot at our top list for western books: http://www.feedbooks.com/discover/to...searchby=books

There are several Max Brand books at PG and I think there's a western bookshelf.

I posted Giants in the Earth a few days ago. While not strictly a "Western", it is about settlers in South Dakota.

Head for http://www.Munseys.com it has a whole western section (including Harte) and in several formats.

I think it used to be Blackmask.
