********** Thanks, Ed! I'm picking up a bunch of bits and pieces and having a great time doing it. Every critique book I read references at least a half dozen others that sound interesting.

Perhaps a little off-topic but not by far is a nonfiction book by David Courtwright called Violent Land, subtitled Single Men and Social Disorder from the Frontier to the Inner City. It's a study of the causes of violence in the US. It's got a really decent analysis of cowboys and the cowboy image.
