Description - Singing in the Saddle by Douglas B. Green

Now, for the first time in paperback, Douglas B. Green's authoritative potrayal of the singing cowboy! From the early days of vaudeville and radio, from the heyday of movie westerns before World War II, to the current revival, Green provides rich and careful analysis of the studio system that made men as Gene Autry and Roy Rogers famous, and he documents the role that country music and regional television stations played in carrying on the singing cowboy tradition after World War II. Filled with fabulous photos, amusing stories, and smart analysis, this book is a treasure for scholars and fans alike.
