    • Re: Yakima Canutt Book


      I've just done a very quick search there are some out there from Amazon and other book companies ranging from $48 up to $400 for a signed copy. A more thourough search may find one cheaper.

      For the Brits $48 is only £24 and with the price of books nowadays thats not bad for an our of print book.

      Hello Keith

      You have finally got me hooked!

      I have tried to avoid your pals of the saddle posts because I just knew that once I started, like a good book I would not be able to put it down until it was finished then would want more.

      I was RIGHT! What a fantastic series, ever thought of collating into a book! If you do put me down for the first copy. (signed copy of course)

      Now off to read some more.

      Thank you so much.

      Who else like me thinks there are just so many interesting areas surrounding JW? Its great after being a long time fan to be still discovering them.

      John Crawford is not Johnny Crawford. John is an actor, too. He played the Mayor in Clint Eastwood's "The Enforcer." Also, was in Burt Lancaster "Apache" and was one of the Argonauts in "Jason and the Argonauts." He's a good man, good director and a hell of a producer. It was an honor to have been "Yakima and John's" partner. To make "Yak's Best Ride" was something I'll never forget. John & I wrote the song first. It was just like it happen. Meeting "Yakima" at Smokey Joes. I'm glad we got his star on the Walk of Fame...well deserved. Mr. Heston drove over from the set of the Colby's just to be there. Said he would have drove alot further for Yakima. They don't make men like Yakima anymore...he was truely one of a kind. 4 major careers in one lifetime...wow!!!
