ARIZONA’S FORGOTTEN GUIDE
Folks, sooner or later - Genealogists are going to realize that their family kinfolks are laying on some dealer’s dusty shelves.
Now folks, every great writer has someone or something to lean on when he takes pen in hand. Zane Grey had such a helpmate in Allen Doyle. Doyle’s stories helped Grey sense the excitement of the epic turmoil, labor and sacrifice that marked the opening of the west. Unfortunately, somewhere along the way, the feats of Allen Doyle were forgotten even though two Arizona landmarks – Doyle’s Saddle and Doyle’s Peak are named for him. Perhaps this tribute to him will help all remember:
THE REST OF THE STORY
Please read this. There were many a western story published – the common ones about cowboy and Indians are listed on Ebay every day but the rarer ones like this about a guide and hunter from Arizona who gained the respect of all who knew him are seldom found. Collectors treasure them and their price guide value rises every day. They are hard to find. I hunt them out cause really the better, untold and rarer stories were published in the rest.
Here’s one of ‘em.
FOLLOWING PURCHASE AND PAYMENT, IF YOU WILL WRITE ME OF YOUR SPECIAL NAME OR INTEREST, I WILL DO A FREE SEARCH OF MY WEBSITE AND UNINDEXED STORIES AND NAMES.
IF I FIND SOMETHING THAT I THINK MERITS YOUR INTEREST, I WILL WRITE A REVIEW AND PLACE IT ON EBAY AND GIVE YOU NOTICE AND A HEAD START TO
Following my retirement, I have dedicated my remaining hours to indexing the Genealogy of our western pioneers. During my research, I discovered that thousands of our kinfolk lay unfound and unrecognized on some book dealer’s shelf gathering dust. Because Old Western History and Memorabilia was printed before computer indexing, I index every item I sell.
This complete index will be bound and included in this offering at no additional cost.
Humbly, I am trying to keep our history alive.
I hope you appreciate the effort.

OLD WESTERN PIONEER
MEMORABILIA IS RAPIDLY DISAPPEARING
While others clip ads from magazines, I save history. It’s a shame that our past is being lost. It’s as simple as that.
My wife kids me that after I find a piece I like, buy it, read it, research it, take a picture, scan it, write the blurb, pay the Ebay entry fee and commission, that I end up making about 50 cents an hour. But, OH HOW I LOVE THIS OLD WESTERN HISTORY. What a story, Rare Story!!! Great Pictures. You will love it as it was published in this old complete western magazine of many years ago. The issue is in excellent condition, the cover is pristine and in vibrant color.
As clearly stated in my description, this is featured story in a rarely found and seldom read unusual and complete western magazine. I don't give out name of publication or date because I have caught competitors copying my index and work and trying to sell it as theirs. I hope you understand.
Buyer pays postage of $3.50 First Class Postage to U. S., $5.00 to Canada. $5.00 Priority Mail. $12.00 Par Avion for International Mail. (We have been very disappointed in the time frame for our international mailing. It seems our post office is now mailing surface mailing and it sometimes take over 30 days to get to destination.)Texans must pay 8-¼ % sales tax. Thanks,
