Bill O’Reilly’s LEGENDS
AND LIES of the Real West

By David Fisher, Henry Holt $32

Bill O’Reilly takes a break from his  “Who Killed Who” series to head for the “Real West” in this companion to the Fox TV series. His impeccable research has turned up some fascinating facts about the Legends of the West we’ve been taking as factual. Lots of archival pictures of heroes, heroines and villains take a bow, from Daniel Boone to Billy the Kid.


 WAY DOWN IN LOUISIANA

By Todd Mouton, UL Press $24.95   

Don’t be surprised if your feet start tapping the minute you open this book. Todd Mouton has created a solid package of the music and musicians who, spurred by the imitable Clifton Chenier, created Zydeco.  Filled with photographs, both color and black and white, the book also contains the lyrics to many of the most popular songs, “Hot Tamale Baby” and “It’s Christmas Time” by Chenier and many more. It’s a joyful trip as readers tag along with the kings of Zydeco, Beausoleil, Zachary Richard, Coteau and the lady performers, Bonsoir, Catin and others. But foremost, this book is about how Clifton Chenier took his music from nowhere all the way to win Grammys.
