A founding member of the Western music group, Sons of the Pioneers (1934), ROY ROGERS (1911-1998), born Leonard Slye, broke into films as a singing cowboy the following year. Beginning in 1938, he had starring roles in dozens of Western films featuring his horse, Trigger, and his frequent sidekick, Gabby Hayes. Another frequent co-star was DALE EVANS (1912-2001), born Frances Octavia Smith, who started her career as a singer on radio and in nightclubs. Roy and Dale co-starred in several films, including The Cowboy and the Senorita (1944), The Yellow Rose of Texas (1944), Don't Fence Me In (1945), My Pal Trigger (1946) and Apache Rose (1947), before they were married in 1947. They then starred on television on The Roy Rogers Show (1951-1957) and The Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Show (1962-1963), which closed with their theme song, "Happy Trails to You", written by Evans. Married for 50 years, "The King of the Cowboys" and "The Queen of the West" were a devoted couple with many children (many whom they adopted) and grandchildren. Evans, who also authored several inspirational books, later hosted a religious program. Lightly creased. Covers are lightly worn at edges. Some pages slightly soiled. Overall, fine and interesting.
