9781590170991: Sacagawea's Nickname: Essays on the American West (New York Review Collections (Paperback))

New in paperback

What was achieved and destroyed, what was made up and forgotten in the American West as the continent was mapped, the natives were displaced, and exploits were transformed into legends? In this acclaimed collection, Larry McMurtry profiles explorers and martyrs, hucksters and scholars--figures in the West's enduring yet ever-shifting mixture of myth and reality.

In these twelve pieces, McMurtry explores John Wesley Powell's journey on the Colorado, the dispossession of the Five Civilized Tribes, the fascination the Zuni held over a parade of unscrupulous anthropologists, and--in the bicentennial of their journey--the journals of Lewis and Clark, "our only really American epic."

About the Author :

Larry McMurtry lives in Archer City, Texas. His novels include The Last Picture Show, Terms of Endearment, Lonesome Dove (winner of the 1986 Pulitzer Prize for Fiction), Folly and Glory and Rhino Ranch. His nonfiction works include a biography of Crazy Horse, Walter Benjamin at the Dairy Queen, Paradise, Sacagawea’s Nickname: Essays on the American West and, most recently, Custer.

Excerpt. © Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved. :

"In the essays that follow--though I do attempt to acknowledge two remarkable western women, the poet-novelist Janet Lewis (died age ninety-nine) and the historian Angie Debo (died age ninety-eight)--I have not directly concerned myself with literature. Man may have seven ages, but the West has had only three: the age of Heroes (Lewis and Clark), the age of Publicity (Buffalo Bill), and the age of Suburbia, for which the preferred new term is Urban Sprawl. How we got from the first age to the third, and what we destroyed in the process, is a story historians will be worrying for a long time. Myself, I still mainly like to look." from the Introduction
