More than 100 years after their births, the road to Happy Trails still begins with Dale Evans, The Queen of the West, and Roy Rogers, The King of the Cowboys. What a tribute to this legendary couple of all times. “Spending summers working at the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans museum brought an unexpected pleasure,” says Dustin Rogers, grandson of Roy and Dale. Dustin goes on to say, “I got to personally hear the fans talk about how their lives were impacted by the two people I called Grandpa and Grandma.” In Volume II, The Touch of Roy and Dale, Tricia Spencer recalls the impact Roy and Dale had on the lives of their fans. Their fans were more like an extended family of millions.

I didn’t think Ms. Spencer could top Volume One of The Touch of Roy and Dale, but Volume II is even more special because it tells more of the influence this very special couple had on the lives of their many fans. As I read the letters of fans in this book, I was touched by the heartwarming relationship Roy and Dale had with these fans. Their extended love clearly shows in what the fans say, as well as what members of their family have witnessed. This book is full of even more pictures, loads of information about Roy and Dale, film billboards, and so, so much more. You will just have to purchase a copy of this book for yourself to see what is included. I highly recommend The Touch of Roy and Dale Volume Two, and you can’t have this book unless you have The Touch of Roy and Dale Volume One. These are truly the best two books I have ever read about real-life people!!
