I’m not gonna lie. I considered taking a photograph of my bookshelf and posting that for my entry into this series. But it turns out that while I probably have around 100 western-themed books, that’s not the assignment and anyway most of my books are part of one series or another. I have attempted to include a diverse selection, in as many ways as I could think of. Because it would take approximately forever to write a blurb for every book, I’ve arranged them.

Bur a contemporary, James Weldon Johnson, lived much longer and wrote both poetry and prose of quality. Mr. Johnson simplified the folk speech of the semi-illiterate Negroes of their generation and, in his transcriptions of the prayers, chants and sermons of black preachers which he put into poetry (without the mis-spellings of literal dialect), achieved in God’s Trombones a folk synthesis of genuine beauty. James Weldon Johnson, in his preface to God’s Trombones, expresses well the problems of the American Negro poet who wishes to preserve in his work racial tones and color, but desires an instrument of greater range than illiterate speech.
Robinson, whose first book appeared in 1896, did his best work in sonnets . Just as modern American drama had its beginnings in little theatres, modern American poetry took form in little magazines.
Robinson, whose first book appeared in 1896, did his best work in sonnets, ballad stanzas, and blank verse. In the 1920s he won three Pulitzer Prizes-for his Collected Poems (published 1921), The Man Who Died Twice (1925), and Tristram (1927). Poetry ranged between traditional types of verse and experimental writing that departed radically from the established forms of the 19th century. Particularly important was Poetry: A Magazine of Verse, founded by Harriet Monroe in Chicago in 1912.

The more than fifty authors included are listed according to their birth-dates; and their production, spanning four and a half centuries, is divided into four periods. Work defines each period and shows how selected authors exemplify it. Among those representing the Emergence Period (1540–1832) of explorers and pioneers entering the American West (and a new state of consciousness) are Pedro de Castañeda, Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, Jedediah Smith, and Walt Whitman. The Mythopoeic Period (1833–1889) is represented by, among others, Helen Hunt Jackson, Mark Twain, Bret Harte, Andy Adams, Owen Wister, Black Elk, Luther Standing Bear, Stephen Crane, Willa Cather, and John C. Neihardt. In the Neo-mythic Period (1890–1914), such authors as Thomas Hornsby Ferril, Man Sandoz, Frank Waters, Dorothy Johnson, Walter Van Tilburg Clark, Wallace Stegner, Wright Morris, and William Stafford begin revising the old myths of the American West. Finally, in the Neo-western Period (1914 to the present) Edward Abbey, Gary Snyder, James Welch, Jimmy Santiago Baca, and others demonstrate how the land west of the ninety-eighth meridian has shaped the creative consciousness. This admirable anthology, filling a need long felt by readers, shows writers singing about the American West, the land of dreams; then recording great deeds in it; and finally turning to examine their thoughts about it.
