Welcome to second issue of our Books of the West newsletter. These newsletters, featuring longer book reviews and briefer lists of annotated and cited books, will be published periodically during the year, we hope on a quarterly basis. Our lists will include publication details and prices. All of the books are available from Chaparral Books. We welcome your feedback, comments and book suggestions for inclusion in the newsletter.

- Books from the granddaughter of novelist Ernest Haycox, including several signed, first editions;
- Books from Ray Snyder, a well-known Portland area book collector of Western Americana; and
