Overview

This carefully crafted ebook: “OWEN WISTER Ultimate Collection: Historical Novels, Western Classics, Adventure & Romance Stories (Including Non-Fiction Historical Works)” is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. Owen Wister (1860-1938) was an American writer and "father" of western fiction. When he started writing, he naturally inclined towards fiction set on the western frontier. Wister's most famous work remains the novel The Virginian, set in the Wild West. It describes the life of a cowboy who is a natural aristocrat, set against a highly mythologized version of the Johnson County War and taking the side of the large land owners. The Virginian paved the way for many more westerns by such authors as Zane Grey, Louis L'Amour, and several others. It is also widely regarded as being the first cowboy novel.
