About this title

Synopsis:

AMERICAN WEST is not the stuff of what is patronisingly referred to as the "traditional" western; a world where it is always a few years after the Civil War and many years before the turn of the twentieth century. That was a good world, a fun world, and one that wore out its welcome some years back. "The evolving western is told from the point of view of African Americans, Native Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Jews and Gentiles, Mormons, Catholics, women and men. It is about America, it is about life. Whether the story's central character is a hangman or a midwife, a piano or a cowboy who hates tomatoes, you may be certain of one thing, if the tale reflects an expanding continent, it reflects the American West" - From the editor's introduction.

From the Back Cover:

"Takes the genre to new frontiers."―The Boston Herald

"This is not simply an excellent collection about the West, each story is a haunting and powerful chapter in the creation of a nation."―Michael and Kathleen O'Neal Gear, USA Today bestselling authors of the Anasazi series

Once, there was a world where the heroes were defined by their white clothing and the bad guys always wore black. The town sheriff always gunned down the wild gunslinger while the lady in distress cowered. The Indian was to be feared, not understood, and the white man always saved the day. This was the traditional Western.

But times change, as did the Western. The evolving Western is told from the point of view of blacks, Native Americans, Hispanics, Asians, Jews, Gentiles, Mormons, Catholics, women, and men. It is about America; it is about life. Whether a story's central element is a hangman or a midwife, a piano or a cowboy who hates tomatoes, you may be certain of one thing, if the tale reflects an expanding continent, it reflects the American West.

"If I had to give a friend one book containing the best that today's Western fiction has to offer, it would be American West."―Mike Blakely, former president of the Western Writers of America and the Spur Award-winning author of Summer of Pearls

"A welcome addition to any Western collection."--Booklist
