Editorial Reviews

Review

One of the glories of this book is that it is host to 67 writers...Voices and viewpoints are left out, but that does not diminish the value and pleasure of West of 98. (Tom Wylie Bloomsbury Review 2013-07-01)

Format: Paperback
I've not finished all 66 authors yet, but whenever I have time to read an essay, I am profoundly moved. What a wonderful variety of authors, what a many-faceted reflection of the West.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By an interested reader on April 2, 2012
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is a collection of steller writing, one essay after another is dazzling, poetic, evocative. I intended to skim it and I ended up reading right through it, reading even the essays about the places I've never been to and probably never will go. There are some very melancholy essays, evocative of a splendor that is lost, and some very funny essays, and over all, this is just a really fine collection. Readers of memoir and fiction who care about the relation of self and place, will be interested, so will anyone who cares about the environment. (I already gave it two two friends) I also enjoyed the musings about the west, what the west is and means--"The West we're really seeking is a place inside ourselves where there are still things to be discovered. We always end up heading west whenever we need to find more life to keep us living." I love that!

This is a very good collection of essays from people who love the west and living there. They cover all kinds of things and it's easy to pick up and read. You can read a couple of pages and be done with one. Each one makes you think, maybe makes you happy or sad or just remember.

Somewhat disappointed that so many western writers are caught up in current socio-political interpretations.
