Historical Note

Austin publisher Joe Small began True West magazine in 1953. That same year, he bought an established title, Frontier Times. Both magazines printed non-fiction about the American West. Small's Western Publications published a number of other titles in the 1960's and 1970's. He sold the company in 1983.
