A note of introduction from the proprietor, Felton Cochran: 

In 2019, my store was featured on Bob and Kelly Phillips' "Texas Country Reporter."  It is repeated from time to time on the RFD Channel. Also, in January, 2020, Cactus Book Shop was honored by the national publication, True West Magazine as "Best Western History Book Store." I was quite proud of both of these honors.

If you're ever in San Angelo, please stop and visit. My hours are 10:00am to 5:00 pm Monday through Saturday. I accept major credit cards, and I’m happy to take your out-of-town checks with proper identification.

I've been a serious bookseller since 1995. (Before that, I was a serious book collector for many years.When you visit my shop, you will find an ever-changing inventory of Texana and Western Americana -- floor-to-ceiling, and wall-to-wall. I’m particularly proud of my Texas County and Regional History section which takes up over 70 linear feet of shelving! I also offer large selections devoted to Range and CattleTexas Rangers; lawmen and outlaws;  Frontier Military and Forts; The Texas Revolution and the Republic of Texas; Spanish Exploration and Influences in Texas; The Mexican Revolution; Westerner biographies. And there’s a sizable section of fiction by Texas and Southwest authors. And there's so much more…leather-bound classic literature, children's classics, etc.
