WILLIAM MACLEOD RAINE AUTOGRAPH


William MacLeod Raine was born in 1871 – died 1954.  William was an author of such popular western adventure novels as A Texas Ranger (1910), Yukon Trail (1917) and A Man Four-Square (1919). Born on 22 June 1871 in London England, Raine emigrated to the United States around the age of ten, settling in Arkansas. Raine’s non-fiction work Famous Sheriffs and Western Outlaws (1920) is a moving account of the trials and tribulations of Pioneers settling the West, their conflicts with Native Americans and themselves, often settled at the end of a six shooter. Buffalo roamed the prairies and depraved and desperate men prowled the saloons and dance halls. Gambling, prospecting, hunting and drinking, men find their notoriety and fame in the new hierarchy of outlaws, rustlers, marshals and sheriffs. With fast paced plots and a variety of settings, Raine’s fiction and non-fiction works embody the Spirit of the West, often in cowboy vernacular. They also inspired many films. William MacLeod Raine died on 25 July 1954 and lies buried in the Fairmount Cemetery in Denver, Colorado, USA. He was posthumously inducted into the Hall of Great Westerners of the National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum in 1959. Original William MacLeod Raine Autograph, hand signed on Cut Paper.
