Charlie LeSueur has conducted well over 1000 Question and Answer sessions with the cowboy stars of the silver screen and television starting with Lash La Rue in 1992. In 1999 he released his first book based on interviews he conducted up until that time. The Legends Live On: Interviews with the Cowboy Stars of the Silver Screen features in depth studies of stars such as, Roy Rogers and Dale Evans, Rex Allen, Harry Carey, Jr., Ben Johnson, Robert Fuller, Buck and Dub Taylor, Lash La Rue, John Smith, and Johnny Western told through revealing interviews. In 2014, Charlie released an addendum to this book which answers unanswered questions to the John Smith chapter. Clearing up the Dusty Trail: The Chapter 6 Addendum is offered with the previous book or separately.
Since then, LeSueur has written Riding the Hollywood Trail: Tales of the Silver Screen Cowboys. This comprehensive study of the history of the silver screen "B" westerns is told through the careers of the stars starting with Broncho Billy Anderson in 1903 and ending in 1955 when the studios closed this chapter of western film history.
Since then he has released two CDs called Golden Nuggets Along the Old Hollywood Trail which feature little known facts and stories about film and television westerns and the stars. He is currently working on his next book, Riding the Hollywood Trail II: Blazing the Early Television Trail, which features the fascinating stories of the stars and film heroes that successfully and not so successfully made the transition to television in the early 1950s.
In January of 2014, Charlie LeSueur was honored with his boot prints pressed in cement and added to the Apacheland Wall of Fame in the Audie Murphy Barn at the Superstition Mountain Museum. In February of 2014, he proudly was proclaimed Arizona's Official Western Film Historian.
