Women Writers of the American West, 1833-1927

Book Short Summary:

Women Writers of the American West, 1833–1927 recovers the names and works of hundreds of women who wrote about the American West during the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, some of them long forgotten and others better known novelists, poets, memoirists, and historians such as Willa Cather and Mary Austin Holley. Nina Baym mined literary and cultural histories, anthologies, scholarly essays, catalogs, advertisements, and online resources to debunk critical assumptions that women did not publish about the West as much as they did about other regions. Elucidating a substantial body of nearly 650 books of all kinds by more than 300 writers, Baym reveals how the authors showed women making lives for themselves in the West, how they represented the diverse region, and how they represented themselves. Baym accounts for a wide range of genres and geographies, affirming that the literature of the West was always more than cowboy tales and dime novels. Nor did the West consist of a single landscape, as women living in the expanses of Texas saw a different world from that seen by women in gold rush California. Although many women writers of the American West accepted domestic agendas crucial to the development of families, farms, and businesses, they also found ways to be forceful agents of change, whether by taking on political positions, deriding male arrogance, or, as their voluminous published works show, speaking out when they were expected to be silent.

Book Short Summary:

To those who know the charm of Aldo Leopold's writing in A Sand County Almanac, this collection from his journals and essays will be a new delight. The journal entries included here were written in camp during his many field trips--hunting, fishing, and exploring--and they indicate the source of ideas on land ethics found in his longer essays. They reflect as well two long canoe trips in Canada and a sojourn in Mexico, where Leopold hunted deer with bow and arrow. The essays presented here are culled from the more contemplative notes which were still in manuscript form at the time of Leopold's death in 1948, fighting a brush fire on a neighbor's farm. Round River has been edited by Leopold's son, Luna, a geologist well-known in the field of conservation. It is also charmingly illustrated with line drawings by Charles W. Schwartz. All admirers of Leopold's work--indeed, all lovers of nature--will find this book richly rewarding.

Book Short Summary:

Two Skye's West novels by Spur Award-winner and legendary Western writer Richard S. Wheeler in one volume. The Canyon of Bones Mountain man Barnaby Skye takes work guiding wealthy Englishman Graves Mercer on an exploration of the Yellowstone and Missouri River valleys. Mercer has come to the American wilderness seeking thrilling, preferably salacious, material for British tabloids. He takes an ancient bone that's sacred among certain tribes—and the act may cost the party their lives. North Star Barnaby Skye faces radical change as the wilderness vanishes, buffalo are slaughtered, and the government puts the tribes on reservation land. His family's struggle to adapt takes them from Montana to Wyoming, wrestling with the tide of settlers and the new settlements that dot the western plains and mountains.

Book Short Summary:

All characters not found in historical documents are from the author’s imagination. When a mob shot Joseph Smith, Bishop Lyman Wight was in Texas looking for a new home for the people known as Mormons. When President Brigham Young was elected to lead the group, he sought to form a new colony in California Territory called Deseret. On reaching Kanesville (Council Bluff), Bishop George Miller took a wagon train south to unite with Wight. My interpretation of the characterization of the Latter Day Saints is drawn from several sources. APOSTATE is a story of hard ships and deprivation. George Miller’s group took off for Texas in the middle of the winter. Lycia Smith (fictitious) had recently lost her husband, Joseph Smith, and their son. The young lady headed for Texas to live in the Lyman Wight colony a few miles south of Burnet, Texas. Ruins of the Wight colony still exist on the banks of the Colorado River. Those called Mormons were a hardy people who traveled wilderness trails in hope they would find a place where they could practice their religion in peace. Those who came to Texas to found a new colony faced all the dangers of early travelers coming through Indian country. Snow on the ground only made their journey more difficult.

Book Short Summary:

This wide-ranging book illuminates the importance of the Western in American history. It explores the interconnections between the Western in both literature and film and the United States in the 20th century.Structured chronologically, the book traces the evolution of the Western as a uniquely American form. The author argues that America's frontier past was quickly transformed into a set of symbols and myths, an American meta-narrative that came to underpin much of the 'American century'. He details how and why this process occurred, the form and function of Western myths and symbols, the evolution of this mythology, and its subversions and reconstructions throughout 20th-century American history.The book engages with the full range of historical, literary and cinematic perspectives and texts, from the founding Western histories of Theodore Roosevelt and Frederick Jackson Turner to the New Western history of Patricia Nelson Limerick and Richard White.

"MATT BRAUN IS A MASTER STORYTELLER OF FRONTIER HISTORY." -Elmer Kelton IN THIS TOWN Five thousand dollars. That was what a slick Denver lawyer-representing a mysterious client-offered to pay the legendary manhunter Luke Starbuck. The job: to find a way into Wyoming's infamous Hole-in-the-Wall outlaw stronghold and shoot a bad man dead. Starbuck knew there was something wrong with the deal. And by the time he reached the foothills of the Big Horns he had a good idea what it was: he'd been set up to be killed. ANY MOMENT COULD BE YOUR LAST... Now, making his way among lawmen, gunmen, and free spirits riding on both sides of the law, Starbuck is traveling to Salt Lake City and all the way back to Denver to find the mystery man who wants him dead. But with key players dying every step of the way, Starbuck must find his answers within his own violent past-and in a Badlands town called Deadwood, where secrets are sealed in blood.

Book Short Summary:

This 1940s memoir provides a glimpse into the life and thoughts of a South Carolina plantation owner in the post-Civil War, pre-Civil Rights era. In 1937, after decades in the North, Archibald Rutledge returned to what he described as the “hyacinth days and camellia nights” of his native Carolina Lowcountry to restore his ancestral home, Hampton Plantation, which had been in his family since 1730. Originally published in 1947, these pages describe, in intimate and fascinating detail, the plantation life he found upon his return. In the simple, lyrical language of the first poet laureate of South Carolina, Rutledge portrays the black men and women, descendants of slaves, who labored alongside him in the marshes of the Santee, the stories they shared, and his interactions with them. God’s Children serves as a vivid snapshot of day-to-day activity on a plantation in the American South in the first half of the twentieth century, and of a lifestyle that was ever so slowly disappearing.

Book Short Summary:

The "Songs of the Cattle Trail and Cow Camp" does not purport to be an anthology of Western verse. As its title indicates, the contents of the book are limited to attempts, more or less poetic, in translating scenes connected with the life of a cowboy. The volume is in reality a by-product of my earlier collection, "Cowboy Songs and Other Frontier Ballads." In the former book I put together what seemed to me to be the best of the songs created and sung by the cowboys as they went about their work. In making the collection, the cowboys often sang or sent to me songs which I recognized as having already been in print; although the singer usually said that some other cowboy had sung the song to him and that he did not know where it had originated. For example, one night in New Mexico a cowboy sang to me, in typical cowboy music, Larry Chittenden's entire "Cowboys' Christmas Ball"; since that time the poem has often come to me in manuscript form as an original cowboy song. The changes — usually, it must be confessed, resulting in bettering the verse — which have occurred in oral transmission, are most interesting. Of one example, Charles Badger Clark's "High Chin Bob," I have printed, following Mr. Clark's poem, a cowboy version, which I submit to Mr. Clark and his admirers for their consideration. In making selections for this volume from a large mass of material that came into my ballad hopper while hunting cowboy songs as a Traveling Fellow from Harvard University, I have included the best of the verse given me directly by the cowboys; other selections have come in through repeated recommendation of these men; others are vagrant verses from Western newspapers; and still others have been lifted from collections of Western verse written by such men as Charles Badger Clark, Jr., and Herbert H. Knibbs. To these two authors, as well as others who have permitted me to make use of their work, the grateful thanks of the collector are extended. As will be seen, almost one-half of the selections have no assignable authorship. I am equally grateful to these unknown authors.

Book Short Summary:

Photographer-naturalist Peter Koch first visited the new Big Bend National Park in February, 1945, on assignment to take promotional pictures for the National Park Service. He planned to spend a couple of weeks—and ended up staying for the rest of his life. Koch’s magnificent photographs and documentary film-lectures Big Bend, Life in a Desert Wilderness and Desert Gold introduced the park to people across the United States, drawing thousands of visitors to the Big Bend. His photographs and films of the region remain among the best ever produced, and are an invaluable visual record of the first four decades of Big Bend National Park. In this highly readable book, Koch’s daughter June Cooper Price draws on the newspaper columns her father wrote for the Alpine Avalanche, supplemented by his photographs, journal entries, and short pieces by other family members, to present Peter Koch’s vision of the Big Bend. The book opens with his first “big adventure,” a six-day photographic trip through Santa Elena Canyon on a raft made from agave flower stalks. From there, Koch takes readers hiking on mountain trails and driving the scenic loop around Fort Davis. He also describes “wax smuggling” and other ways of making a living on the Mexican border; ranching in the Big Bend; the prehistory and Native Americans of the region; collaborating with botanist Barton Warnock on books of Trans-Pecos wildflowers; and the history and beauty of Presidio County, the Rio Grande, and the Chihuahuan Desert. This fascinating blend of firsthand adventures, natural history, and personal musings on anthropology and history creates an unforgettable portrait of both Peter Koch and the Big Bend region he so loved.

Book Short Summary:

Sweetwater County lies in southwestern Wyoming, and has stood as a significant symbolic geography for the "new Western Woman’s" history. As the county in which Elinore Pruitt Stewart (Letters of a Woman Homesteader, Nebraska 1990) said she proved up her homestead in 1913, it is a fitting locale for the study of western gender relations. The Important Things of Life examines women’s work and family lives in Sweetwater County in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. The 1880’s discovery of coal caused a population boom, attracting immigrants from numerous ethnic groups. At the same time, liberalized homestead law drew sheep and cattle ranchers. Dee Garceau demonstrates how survival on the ranching and mining frontier heightened the value of group cooperation in ways that bred conservative attitudes toward gender. Augmented by reminiscences and oral histories, Garceau traces the adaptations that broadened women’s work roles and increased their domestic authority. Hers is a compelling portrait of the American West as a laboratory of gender role change, in which migration, relocation, and new settlement underscored the development of new social identities.

Book Short Summary:

For centuries Wyoming was a land no one wanted--high, dry, and remote--more often a thoroughfare on the way to some place else than a final destination. Many of the sweeping developments that overtook the rest of the nation simply passed it by, leaving Wyoming to sit in lonely grandeur behind its granite walls and silent snows. The problem, explains T.A. Larson in this history, was people--and how to get them there. The settlers who came to Wyoming stayed to build a special way of life. It is with them that important choices now rest. "The country where the wind blew in primeval purity will now breathe new odors," says author Larson, unless short-term profits can be balanced by long-term gains. If the right decisions are made, he concludes, it should be possible for Wyoming to "emerge from its primitive isolation in such a way that its greatest values are preserved and its old way of life left for those who choose to follow it."

Book Short Summary:

I never wanted much: just a place of my own and a good woman at night. When I killed a rich man's brother in self-defense, they took all that away from me. Five years in the Yuma Territorial Prison. Five years smashing a sixteen pound hammer into a never-ending rockpile. Five years of beatings and abuse. Five years of hell and hate, but finally I was free. All I wanted now was a horse beneath me, a gun in my hand, and Gil David in my sights. It was do or die, and I take a lot of killin'.

Book Short Summary:

This is a book of poetry that spans the years. Some of these poems were written forty years ago, and some were written now for this book. They are meant to be fun to read but some of them have been written with tongue in cheek. They all have some segments that was from a real time or place but I may be the only one that can find the connection. A good example of this will be found in the works that I have titled THE FACES OF THE LADY. This is about a large wilderness lake that is along the Minnesota- Ontario border. I have fished and camped on this lake many times and any canoeist that paddles the lake will soon find that this Lady has many moods that can change in an instant. I had a lot of fun writing this book, and I hope you find enjoyment in reading it.
