In the vast literature on Charles M. Russell, no book provides a more personal and revealing look on this western master than this new book: Back-Tracking in Memory: Charles M. Russell, Artist. This book features the manuscripts of his beloved wife and business partner, Nancy Russell, and the stories and reflections found in these pages provide a fresh view of this legendary couple.

Together, these elements offer a rich and engaging experience for readers. This is a critical book for anyone searching to encounter the American West through the life and art of Charlie Russell, in a way only Nancy can tell and a perfect addition to the book collectors' shelves.
