Saturday Morning Western Pulp: Big Chief Western, October 1940
This is the first issue of a short-lived series that featured a lead story by Arthur Lawson in each issue about a character known as White Eagle, obviously a white man raised by Indians, an old, old plot that still crops up occasionally, even now. Authors of the back-up stories in this issue are Chuck Martin, Lee Bond, John A. Saxon, and Wayne D. Overholser, solid pulpsters all. I'm not sure I'd have picked this up if I'd been browsing the newsstand in 1940, but it's an interesting oddity, I think.
