Summary
The first of its kind, Wister's The Virginian is a prototypical western novel that has inspired readers and authors for over a century. Detailing the exploits of a gunslinger known solely as the Virginian, Wister's novel introduced readers to a number of western motifs that are taken for granted in western fiction today. This is a must-read for any fan of the western genre - Amazon
