Chilton Williamson, Jr. (Paperback)

From the back cover of The Hundredth Meridian by Chilton Williamson: The Old West of the frontier, pioneer, and post-pioneer generations was an elemental place that 20th-century America, by mythologizing it (for ideological and commercial purposes, mainly), has succeeded in transforming into an object of sophisticated postmodern ridicule.
