VII.  Sheet Music  


 

     In my book, Harold Bell Wright's Books and Collectibles, I list seven editions of “Out Where the West Begins,”  a poem by Arthur Chapman, set to music by Estelle Philleo.  This is the most common sheet music related to Wright.  But the only direct tie to Wright’s book is the art work. The music publishers inserted this note:  "The three sketches are reproductions of original pen sketches by Harold Bell Wright, made to illustrate his recent novel, 'When A Man's A Man,' and  used by permission of his publishers, the Book Supply Company."  The third sketch, below, does not appear on the later editions of the sheet music.   

But there are several other titles, such as “The Shepherd of the Hills,” listed below, that use the same title as a Wright book.  Some state that they are related to the book by that title.

Click here to see the complete list of "Out Where the West Begins" editions that Wayne and June Way sent me.  Their list is more complete than the one in my book.  I have included their additional editions in blue letters.

       In my collection I have a special commemorative edition of “Out Where the West Begins.”  On the front, this copy is signed by Estelle A. Philleo, to Bunola Tucker.  Inside the front cover is the story of how, when, where, why, and by whom the poem was written.  Click here for the complete story.
