SIDELIGHTS: Terrell L. Bowers once commented: "I began reading westerns while working with my father, who pulled mobile homes for a living. After the first thousand, I felt some of my ideas for characters and stories were equal to or better than those I was reading.

"Raised on mini-farms, I lived and played cowboys, complete with my own horse. With heroes like Johnny MacBrown, Bob Steele, and John Wayne, it was inevitable that I would one day create my own heroes."
