"At once social history and cinematic criticism, this book is distinguished by a subtle interplay between the reality of Western life and the films and fictions which have been created from that reality. In delineating the social context which gave rise to the myths of Western life, she provides an interesting original perspective on many films including those of John Ford, Sam Peckinpah, and Howard Hawkes, as well as on the writings of Zane Grey, Max Brand, and Luke Short. She suggests that the Western hero is a lonely anarchic figure who personifies the paradox of a country that idealized independence but was inevitably moving toward society and community." from the jacket flap.
