Red­cliff li­brary show­ing doc­u­men­tary on fa­mous French-Cana­dian cow­boy

Prairie Post (East Edition) - - Prairies -

A doc­u­men­tary film about a leg­endary cow­boy will be shown Sept. 9 at the Red­cliff Pub­lic Li­brary from 1:30-3:30 p.m. The full fea­ture-length doc­u­men­tary un­veils the amaz­ing story of Ernest Du­fault, also know as Will James. This French-Cana­dian man be­came one of the most leg­endary cow­boys of the Amer­i­can West. Over the space of three decades he went from be­ing a cat­tle rustler to ex- con­vict, and the film ex­plores the pow­er­ful at­trac­tion the West held for those seek­ing ad­ven­ture. The li­brary also has books about Will James.

The Red­cliff Pub­lic Li­brary re­ceived a do­na­tion of nine of his books through the Will James So­ci­ety Book Gift­ing Pro­gram. A small re­cep­tion to pro­mote books in the com­mu­nity will run in con­junc­tion with the show­ing of the doc­u­men­tary, says li­brary man­ager Tracy Wein­rauch.
