New Mexico author Max Evans is best known for The Rounders, which along with a later book, Hi Lo Country, were turned into popular Hollywood movies. Evans is also the recipient of numerous writing awards, including the 1990 Levi Strauss Saddle man Award for lifetime achievement in Western literature. However, Max Evans has been much more than “just” an author including stints as a working cowboy, artist, miner, mine operator, and, above all, a wonderful storyteller.
His latest book, and he swears his last work of fiction, War and Music: A Medley of Love, stems from WWII when he was one of the “doughboys” who stormed the beach at Normandy, France, and, unlike many of his comrades, lived to tell about it.
Please join host Stephen Spitz for what promises to be a very entertaining half-hour with one of our premier writers.
