Books We Love: Happy Trails

|

Roy Rogers and Dale Evans made their first movie together in 1944, and so began a dazzling partnership with a devoted public following that lasted 52 years. In this charming photographic biography, readers meet the talented young man and woman who would eventually become the royal couple of B-rated Westerns, a reign that would last more than a decade.  The dynamic pair, adored by fans for both their acting and their singing abilities, co-starred in 29 movies and recorded more than 200 albums together, eventually parlaying their fame to the small screen with a half-hour television hit The Roy Rogers Show, as well as a comic book series and a long list of merchandise (including clothes, boots, and toys), bearing their names.

Happy Trails is a unique and captivating collection of photographs and memories chronicling the lives of the King of the Cowboys and the Queen of the West. With a complete list of filmography for both stars and a look back at the artifacts once visible to the public at the Roy Rogers—Dale Evans Museum, this book transports nostalgic readers back to a time when the good folks always saved the day and lovers rode off together into the sunset to the famous tune written by Evans, “Happy Trails.”   It is both a remembrance for aficionados and a beguiling introduction for new fans, demonstrating how, though both career and family are in the limelight, they can still be well-lived.
