A native of Pennsylvania, Owen Wister (1860-1938) spent a number of long summers in the west during the closing days of the frontier, where he became friends with western artist Frederic Remington. He was also close friends with Teddy Roosevelt, another easterner who fell in love with the west. Wister's journeys and experiences contributed to his fascination with the culture, history, and lore of the closing frontier. Wister is often regarded as the "father" of western fiction.

I have read The Virginian and loved it. That's why I got if for my nook. The problem is with the Nook Book, every line, every work throughout the book and short stories is underlined. Very annoying. I suppose this is a case of getting what you pay for. Still if I can figure out how to do it, I will return it and purchase another version.
