Paperback 907: Treasure of the Brasada / Les Savage, Jr. (Dell 673)

Paperback 907: Dell 673 (1st ptg, 1953)

Title: Treasure of the Brasada
Author: Les Savage, Jr.
Cover artist: Stanley Borack

Estimated value: $8-12

Best things about this cover:
  • She's got the whole gun / amulet / boob trifecta going. Dude's like "Whoa... easy."
  • Gun-crotch nexus. Who has the phallus now, buddy!
  • I think she stopped a lynching. Or else she interrupted some very risky sex play.
  • Hey, it's Les Savage's son, Even Less Savage!
  • I got this paperback in a vintage clothing store in Minneapolis. 

Best things about this back cover:
  • Look out! Arrows!
  • "The faint rattle of mesquite berries" is how I will describe the sound of my next chest cold.
  • This (long!) description is vague to the point of making me not care.
  • "Try it. Come on, try it. I'm here. Try it." These are some pretty mediocre 70s dance song lyrics.

"Let's close the poke," he said.

Early Texans had very lively idiomatic sexual expressions.


P.S. I've been pretty lax with the updates recently because of a million things, but I'm gonna try diligently to get on a (minimum) M / F posting schedule.

I can totally hear ABBA singing that. And the cowboy looks like he's trying to dance to it, but all he can manage is the white guy shuffle.

I believe we've been given a glimpse of the Treasures of the Bra [of] Sada, but Sada doesn't seem to be wearing a bra, so I'm a bit confused.

a poke is a bag as in 'pig in a poke' buying something unseen
