Cultural Counterparts[]

"The Gunfighters" is one of at least three volumes to be released in Japanese, alongside "The Soldiers" and "The Cowboys". It is assumed the remaining 23 titles were also translated, but the TLTOW Wiki can not verify this. We are also currently unable to verify whether the series has been released in any language other than Japanese.






The Gunfighters have received more cover changes than any other book in the series. Usually altered for promotional and uniformity reasons, the book has had its cover changed five times over the 30 years it was produced.
