Happy Trails: Our Life Story

Roy Rogers, Author, Dale Evans, With, Michael Stern, With Simon & Schuster $23 (252p) ISBN 978-0-671-89714-7
Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, who played highly moral heroes and heroines and satisfied America's passion for westerns in the 1940s and '50s, here present their dual autobiography, co-written by pop culture-chronicler Sterns (Way Out West). The stars relive their early struggles-he as an Ohio ``backwoods country boy'' and she as an ambitious, would-be chanteuse-and move on to their triumphs in rodeos, 88 movies, radio series and TV shows. In the most dramatic episode, they recall how, during the filming of The Cowboy and the Senorita, Rogers, astride his famous horse, Trigger, rescued his new co-star from her rampaging horse, an adventure that led to their marriage in 1948. Their book is sure to be avidly read by the members of the worldwide Roy Rogers fan clubs. Photos not seen by PW. (Nov.)
