Overview

Comprised in this book are eight thrilling stories set in the American West, linked by the themes of life and manners and, occasionally, a commonality of characters. Written in a time of disunity of America by the master of Western literature, this text details a society not too far removed from that of the contemporary: it’s a story about ‘indians and soldiers and events west of Missouri’. Written by the ‘father of western fiction’ Owen Wister, this piece contains many actual accounts of famous events: “The visit of Young-man-afraid-of-his-horses to the Little Big Horn and the rise and fall of the young Crow impostor, General Crook’s surprise of E-egante, and many other occurrences, noble and ignoble, are told as they were told ... by those who saw them.” A thrilling collection of some of the best western fiction, this book is a must-have for any fan of the genre. Owen Wister was an American writer and giant of western fiction. Originally published in 1895, this book is republished with an introductory biography of the author.
