About The Will James Society

The Will James Society (WJS) was formed in 1992 as a non profit organization dedicated to preserving the memory and works of the phenomenal western author and artist Will James. The WJS is the primary catalyst for a continuing and growing interest in Will James and his many contributions as an author and western artist.

Will James was a true cowboy in every sense of the word.

"I feel a good horse under me wether he's bucking, or running, or cutting out a wild cow, and it don't matter where I'm at when I draw or paint 'em because I can always feel 'em from the tip of my boot toe to my hat-band."
