Of Chiles, Cacti, & Fighting Cocks: Notes on the American West (expanded ed.)
Frederick Turner (au). In this highly acclaimed collection of essays, revised & expanded here with three new essays, Frederick Turner -- historian, storyteller, biographer, & naturalist -- turns a keen eye on the strange coexistence of legend & reality in the modern American West. Here two western pasts echo, each swaying our contemporary notions of the great expanse west of the Mississippi. Turner is probably the foremost writer today on the American West, its history, manners, & mores. Here, with his elegant prose, he ranges all over, from Native Americans to saguaros to the Basques to Billy the Kid to cowboys. “Turner is one of the mots insightful social critics of our time.” Turner’s vision is alive: we see through his words. he has found his voice.”
