Bob Boze Bell, as he's called in his hometown (Kingman), has published seven colorful and groundbreaking books on the West, with virtually all of them in multiple printings. Among the subjects-Wyatt Earp, Billy the Kid, Doc Holliday and his latest work is "Hellraisers & Trailblazers."

In 1999, Bell, along with two other passionate Old West friends, bought True West Magazine and moved the editorial offices to Cave Creek. The magazine, published since 1953, continues to grow and features the distinctive style of Bell's creative vision.

In addition to his efforts for True West, Boze's work has appeared in Arizona Highways and National Lampoon. His artwork is featured on numerous book covers, and he appears often on the History Channel, Discovery Channel and the Westerns Channel (True West Moments), where his historical expertise and art are often featured.
