Illustrations by Charles W. Walker. A classic western novel. This is Max Evans' first novel, and it remains his best known work today. "The Rounders" was made into a film in 1965, starring Henry Fonda and Glenn Ford.

This copy is warmly inscribed by Max Evans to Ernie Bulow, bookman, publisher, and friend of the author, on the dedication page.

After receiving an English degree in the sixties, Bulow worked for the Bureau of Indian Affairs, resided in Gallup, N.M., and taught English at Fort Wingate on the Navajo Reservation. Subsequently, he received a doctorate from the University of Utah, and he returned to Gallup, where he traded in Indian jewelry and kachinas and opened his bookstore.
