The Texan( Visual )

5 editions published between 1959 and 2008 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Among the crowd of television westerns in the 1950s and 60s, The Texan stands tall. Western movie matinee idol Rory Calhoun, with his trademark black hat and steely gaze, stars as Bill Longley, a Civil War Veteran roaming the west in this fast paced, action-packed drama. With a reputation for a fast gun, loyalty to his friends, and merciless adherence to the law, Longley's quixotic travels take him across Texas from small town to small town. Along with adventure, and sometimes romance, trouble inevitably finds him, confronting him with the contradictions of the "Code of the West." Although not a lawman himself, his reputation as a gunfighter often precedes him, pitting Longley against the forces of lawlessness. Although he is not a violent man, and he tries to de-fuse dangerous situations with frontier diplomacy, the last resort is often the only way to remedy a bad one, and Bill Longley is always up to the task" --
