A new look at the "Congressional GUNFIGHTERS of America," in this third edition I've added the Oakdale (CA) 21st Annual Cowboys and Chocolate festival, and then the wild Sacramento Rivertrain where the law men confront the Garcia Gang that blows up a Wells Fargo money chest along the river run. Then more action in a book about gun fighting as entertainment by way of films, parties, and demonstrations - not unlike what we've grown up with from the western days and found in places like California, Nevada, and Florida amusements parks, But in their case. there are no live rounds or assault rifles with 30 round clips in play. The cast of San Francisco bay area people shown here are real, but when you meet them they are "in character." They are for the most part working people, but include professionals of various trades, and at least one film director whose movie credits are on your list of famous films.

I was a news photographer and picture editor for seven newspapers, and member of the National Press Photographers Assc. since 1956. A Life Member of the San Francisco Bay Area Press Photographers Association, after being the Picture Editor at The Sacramento (CA) Union (1968-89), New York Newsday (1989-94), and Contra Costa Times (1994-96) when I retired after 40-years in the newspaper business - starting as a shooter since 1956. I'm retired but still shoot and actively travel today for my own interest. The assorted books have turned out to be a way to gather many of my images for nice and simple presentations.

Wow, look out on Highway 49, as I heard today that these gunfighters are about to head up there with an action-packed look-back to the days of Mark Twain, and some wild burro and a frog or two may be in the staged event(s). Mark and I both worked at The Sacarmento Union, so he has a place in my heart, but no pictures in his - few decardes apart, well more than a "few."

Lots of action. smoke, and words of challenge, but no blood, just like in the olde days of the movies. Just old west history in today's world.
