Read the High Country

Read the High Country: A Guide to Western Books and Films (Genreflecting Advisory Series) Read the High Country: A Guide to Western Books and Films by John Mort


My review


rating: 5 of 5 stars
Another excellent book in the Genreflecting Advisory Series. Yes, the Western has dropped in popularity in the past few years, but there are still classics that every large library should own.



The book is organized into the major sub-genres and then further sub-divided into types of plots. The diversity of the western and its representation of western history is thoroughly examined.



Items of "classic" reputation are clearly marked, as are award-winners and YA-interest titles.



A great addition to any collection development library or fan of the genre
