Editorial Reviews

Review

What I love most about this book is the reader is treated to an accurate, birdseye view of the notorious James-Younger Gang as seen through the eyes of two youngsters, Luke and Jenny. These two have the ability to communicate with the spirit world and do some time traveling. Couldn't we all be so blessed. What a great way for people, especially youngsters, to learn history. --Marshall Trimble, Official Arizona State Historian

About the Author

When Gayle Martin returned to Phoenix, Arizona, in 1997 to further her career in art, her plans quickly got sidetracked when she learned of the plans to demolish the Cine Capri, an old and revered movie theatre in town. Her father, W. E. "Bill" Homes, Jr., was the contractor who had built the landmark structure in 1966. A campaign was begun to save the theatre, but it was not to be. The theatre was razed in 1998, just weeks after her father passed away. The whole experience, however, ignited within Gayle a passion for history and more importantly, for keeping history alive. She commissioned an architectural model of the Cine Capri in her father's memory and gifted it to the Arizona Historical Society. A second-generation Phoenix native, Gayle graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in art and then pursued postgraduate studies at the Academy of Art College in San Francisco. Following the devastating earthquake in 1989, she moved to Colorado where she worked for several years as a graphic designer and illustrator, winning numerous prestigious awards. After she made the move to Phoenix and was inspired by the efforts to preserve her father's theatre, she discovered a new outlet for her talents. Since 2002, Gayle has been a featured performer with the Arizona Living History Programs, an organization of her own creation. She has taken audiences on "time travel trips" by performing as historic characters, dressed in period costumes. She has helped entertain and educate schools, universities, associations, convention groups, and corporations. One of her characters is a woman by the name of Elizabeth St. Claire. Through this persona, Gayle becomes "The Old West Storyteller" and shares tales of what is was like in the Arizona Territory, placing a special emphasis on Tombstone and the events surrounding the famous gunfight that occurred near the O.K. Corral. Gayle is a Candidate Member of the Arizona Chapter of the National Speaker's Association. Gayle Martin was awarded a Spirit of the Old West Alive Award, on August 27, 2010. LeeAnn Sharpe created the "Spirit of the Old West Alive Awards" to record the stories of people who are working to keep the Old West vibrant. Her not-for-profit endeavor has interviewed and recorded 31 people, and oneday will result in a book telling the stories of all of these marvelous people.
