13 The Literary West: An Anthology of Western American Literature
Lyon, Thomas J. (edited by) Oxford University Press 1999 0195124618 / 9780195124613 Soft cover Very Good Book 8vo - over 7 - 9" tall 
In very good condition. Clean and tight paperback. pp. xii, 444. The story of western literature is the story of two Wests, the one immediately and deeply persuasive, the second more complex in its intentions and effects. This anthology, gathered and introduced by distinguished western scholar Thomas J. Lyon, offers a panoramic literary range of the American west, from the romance of the mythic Wild West to the present-day creative explosion of the real, diverse west. The regional expanse of this authoritative and adventuresome selection of short stories, essays, plays, and novel excerpts stretches from the Great Plains, Texas and the Southwest, the Rocky Mountains and the Great Basin interior, to California and the Northwest. Including selections from Pedro Font, Meriweather Lewis, Willa Cather, James Fenimore Cooper, Owen Wister, Zane Grey, John Muir, Tillie Olsen, Rick Bass, Amy Tan, Sarah Winnemucca, and N. Scott Momaday, among others, the volume is organized in five main sections: Discovery and Exploration, Pioneering and Settlement, The Mythic West, Modernism and the Realistic West, Recent and Contemporary Currents, and The Native West. From the projective "Great Frontier" of dime-store novels to the real west brought to light by sixteenth century explorers, mid-nineteenth century realists and naturalists, and todays environmentalists and ethnic writers, The Literary West offers students a comprehensive overview of the vital field of Western American literature. 306195
