Description : Literary histories, of course, do not have a reason for being unless there exists the literature itself. This volume, perhaps more than others of its kind, is an expression of appreciation for the talented and dedicated literary artists who ignored the odds, avoided temptations to write for popularity or prestige, and chose to write honestly about the American West, believing that experiences long knowns to be of historical importance are also experiences that need and deserve a literature of importance.

Description : In one consequential volume, Crisscrossing Borders in Literature of the American West presents the cross-section of a fast-changing and greatly expanded field. Through interdisciplinary essays, this volume on the post-national West challenges the idea of a unified national story sustained by strategic exclusions. Contributors analyze the economic and environmental exploitation depicted in working-class Western literature, emphasize the transnational by approaching both the North/South and cross-Atlantic axes grapple with the role of Mormons, and dissect the new masculinity of "Silicon Gunslingers." Each essay successfully and compellingly models a new and fruitful way of engaging the West.

Description : Ever since the famous theory of Frederick Jackson Turner, migration has been a central theme in the popular imagination and scholarly study of the American West. Moving Stories showcases today's varied scholarly approaches. Contributors from the fields of literature, history, and popular culture examine a range of topics: migration into, within, and out of the West; the diverse meanings of migration for women and men of different ethnic and economic backgrounds; literary portrayals of migration from western novels to the Harlem Renaissance to postmodernism; and the influence of specific historic events, such as the Great Depression and World War II, on migration. The essays draw upon diaries and letters, oral histories, fiction and memoirs, photographs, government reports and promotional literature, and more.
