Fall Series: Cowboys & Gunfighters: An American Tradition
The glory of the old west is an integral part of the American story. Books and movies are in large part responsible for our view of this important sub-culture. But the image of the cowboy is changing in literature, and we will read five titles that show the many “faces” of the American cowboy. Next year we may tackle the related topic of the Native American Indian in our Fall Series…
The next meeting is on Thursday November 5th and we’ll be discussing the classic Western author Zane Grey’s Riders of the Purple Sage. Initially published in 1912 and the first of Zane Grey’s many bestsellers, this stirring tale of adventure in the high country established the prototype for western novels of the twentieth century. The plot’s focus is a proud young heroine who’s determined to defend her Utah ranch. She stands alone against the villains who rustle and stampede her cattle —until a stranger rides into the territory.
