Crutchfield, a long-time WWA Secretary-Treasurer and seasoned historian, has assembled a remarkable cadre of contributors in The Way West.

Utley shows us the true faces of the Texas Rangers* Dale L. Walker takes us on a tour of the final resting places of forty of the West's most celebrated figures.The Way West covers many of the now obscure individuals and long-lost tales of our storied past and gives new insights into famous characters and events of this legendary era. So join the Western Writers of America on a journey back in time and lose yourself in the colorful history of the American West.
