Item description for Nickel-plated Dream by Stephen Lodge...
"The Kid"---a 20th Century lad with a stubborn wish that he'd been born a 19th Century gunfighter, and his faithful companion---an eccentric Indian--- embark on an adventure-filled odyssey that takes them from John Wayne's set of The Alamo in Texas to Opening Day at the Old Tucson Western Movie-Set Amusement Park in Arizona.
Their rowdy escapades eventually lead them to California's celebrated Corriganville Movie Ranch---the Universal Studios Tour of its day. Here is where The Kid quickly learns the ropes by testing both his love and his courage. Acting out famous historical gunfights for the throngs of paying tourists brings The Kid closer to his dreams---and to death.
Nickel-Plated Dream is loosely based upon the author's youthful recollections of 1959 when he was a 16-year-old gunfighter/stuntman at the then-world-famous Corriganville Movie Ranch Attraction near Hollywood.
