My research records indicate that in the year 1980 only 2 Trailsman books were published: Seven Wagons West and The Hanging Trail. It was a beginning but not close to the series it has become. July, 2011, saw book #357 Stagecoach Sidewinders, come into print, distant followers to the first two books way back in 1980. I doubt the publishers could know just what a gold mine these books would become, and the numerous authors who would contribute to them.

Several things in this initial book point out the differences of 'then' and 'now':

Wisconsin Territory???? Hardly a western setting for the first of a new western series. Also most wagon trains shoved off to the prairies from St. Joe, Missouri, not Bent Fork, Wisconsin.

The voice of the Trailsman in this book is not the one that we have in the recents books of today, his manners are different in #1 and his voice is much sharper and judgmental than the more recent books. In many instances he insists he is right and the other person is wrong. He also swears and mutters to himself much more in this book. Most people seem to be an irritation to him.

Some earlier reviews point out that the horse he rides is not a pinto but an Ovaro. Yet the Trailsman refers to the horse early in this book as a 'pinto' mentioning that "He always used pinto ponies given his choice.". Also, saying they are easy to handle, did not take abuse, and were smart and independent. Fargo had had this 3 years, and he enjoyed their "special" beauty. "An Ovaro: the entire hindquarters black along with the head: chest and forelegs and in the middle, stark white from withers to coupling." (page 14). Too bad the various cover artists for this series don't always keep that description in mind, as the horse is generally shown a bit different from cover-to-cover, not coinciding with that given description.

Fortunately for this story Fargo has a good friend, Ollie Hawkins, along to help with the trip. Ollie is an aged, experienced guide and a quiet plainsman so the repartee between the pair, Fargo and Ollie, add much to this story. Most of the other characters, except the mountain man in the story, are pretty much cookie cutter characters we've come to expect in these books. As with an older Ollie Hawkins, occasionally we do get to enjoy exceptional, strong characters. Generally, however, there are no characters carried over from one book to another. In some rare instances, an enjoyable, interesting character can even be killed off in the very book you're reading!

So for a very first book of a series this book is pretty much what one would expect: an interesting, believable story, rather assorted and interesting characters, all moving toward a stated, definite goal. Even lead by a zealot preacher in search of silver mines with a thought that all members of the wagon train will either get rich or receive that for which they search. Well, we know with the silver mines smack dab in the middle of Sioux country that is probably not going to happen with the ending much less than hoped for. In fact almost everything comes up less than what they hoped to receive.

Fortunately down through many years, and many other books, the Trailsman has come into his own not only to last but to become one of the all time financial successes of the publishing world. Now published monthly, the series is scheduled to continue into 2012 with Devil's Death, book 363, due out in January, 2012.

While this book comes up a little short for me, after reading so many later ones, the series had to start somewhere. Not a bad start at all, at least a 3-star read for me.

Note: Remember too that the author who wrote this very first Trailsman book is now deceased. Any Trailsman book in print since #1 may have been written by other contract writers. Those writers have included, but are not limited to, David Robbins, Robert J. Randisi, J.B. Keller, Bill Crider, Ed Gorman, Will C. Knott, Robert Vardeman, John Edward Ames, and even at various times some female writers.

Also, a brand new cover change may be in the offing beginning with The Trailsman book #362, Range War, due out on December 06, 2011. A new cover illustration to match the new cover price of $6.99

Yes, buckaroos, the price of reading the Trailsman 'west' shoots up a buck a month, too, from $5.99 to $6.99 (actually the price change was effective with the August, 2011, book 358, Six-Gun Vendetta).

Best in reading, pards.

What a surprise when I came across this No.1 Episode of the Trailsman series.It just didn't make sense as it looked brand new.It was in a small store that sold new,remainders, as well as used books.I checked the copyright page and there was nothing to suggest it was anything but a First edition and showed the First Printing as July,1980.However;there are three numbers below the first Printing,10 9 8 which should have tipped me off as to it being a reprint.Not only that ,when I got home with it ,I checked my library, and my earliest Trailsman was No.28,and was published in April,1984. Something is amiss here! Since these episodes ar published monthly ,and if No.28 was April,1984; No.1 should have been published in February 1982,not July,1980.Be that as it may,I was keen to read No.1 and enjoyed it very much.I am assuming it is a true reprint of the first Episode.Another thing that should have tipped me off is that the artwork and "look" of the cover is much more like recent Episodes as opposed to the earlier Editions that showed a quite different looking Fargo with a backdrop of a wagon wheel with a mountain scene in the background and scenes from the story in the foreground.
This saga was well written and had Fargo leading a Preacher and his band of followers into the mountains in search of a hidden treasure,for which the Preacher had a secret map.There are lots of well developed ,interesting characters,lots of fast action and gunfights,and one is left wondering if there is going to be anyone still left standing in the end.This was a great starting episode in what turned out to be a long-lasting and exciting series;andlittle wonder that it has continued to the present.I have read,and thoroughly enjoyed many of the now over 330 Episodes that have been published ,and look forward to many more.

I am presently on The Trailsman #71 and have to make a comment. I like the series although I skip much of the sex, but I get the impression Jon Sharpe (aka Robert J. Randisi) is not the only one writing these books.
For example, some books treat the Spencer single-shot rifle as a repeating rifle, which is wasn't.
And the language is out of character for Western books.
For example, in #71, a woman rides inadvertence (look it up), riders plunged afile (not in my dictionary), and swear unpiously (is pious swearing allowed?).
These are Westerns, always my favorite, but why all the strange words. I'm not impressed and it distracts from the story. I fear Signet will soon be claiming these are "historic" novels like they do the newer books (which ain't either).
That said, I plan to read 'em all! I ignore the distractions and concentrate on the plot, which is always vivid! Great escapism!

I have been reading this book from Number One. It is a very interesting line of books and worth reading. I have everyone from # 1 to # 350 ( I just ordered # 351 through # 357 from Amazon). I order/preorder them from Amazon a few times a year and they ship me one each month or so.

At one point there was a reprint of the number one book and I remember seeing some of the books being done in a larger book then the standard one.

Order this series, you will not go wrong, John Sharpe is a very good wrighter and also wrights a few other westerns in this style. They are different people but still in the "Western Setting".

Read and enjoy, after all that's what books are for right, to let us enjoy and think of what it would be like to be there.

David

EDIT: I checked my books and this is the reprint of the 1st book. Still enjoy it though, it's a great book !!!

It took me a little bit to get into the story, but after a while I couldn't put it down. I love it and I know I will love the rest of the books that I order. I would recomend this series to everyone.
Great merchandise and fast delivery
