With his revered classics The Big Sky and The Way West, A. B. Guthrie, Jr., claimed his preeminent post as the father of the western epic. Fair Land, Fair Land, first published in 1982, marks the sequel to his two masterworks and rounds out a chronological gap, the mid-nineteenth century, in Guthrie's Big Sky series. Reappearing here is Dick Summers, of the earlier sagas, now a wizened conservationist who seeks retribution from his former compatriot Boone Caudill and renewed companionship with the self-reliant Teal Eye. Imbued with a rich sense for the impermanence of the idyllic plains, this tour de force offers a stirring commentary on a country's physical and spiritual erosion, as relevant today as it was a decade ago.

About the Author:

A. B. Guthrie, Jr. (1901-1991), was the author of numerous books, including six Big Sky novels, as well as the Academy Award-winning screenplay for the classic film Shane. He received the 1950 Pulitzer Prize for his novel The Way West. Guthrie was honored for his contribution to literature and his portrayal of the American West.

From Library Journal:

Who says the West isn't wild any more? This duo by Guthrie follow on the boot heels of two recent Max Brand reprints (Classic Returns, 10/15/95), perhaps triggering a resurgence of interest in the genre. LJ's reviewer found Fair Land, a sequel to Guthrie's Big Sky and The Way West, "not only an authentic portrayal of the Old West but also a good novel with full-bodied characters and a spare, though picturesque, style" (LJ 9/1/82). The Thousand Hills, however, was deemed "far below the author's usual high standard" (LJ 11/15/56). A hit and a miss.
