The Crowded Prairie Book Description:

Focuses on a group of popular, critically acclaimed westerns, examining their interaction with US society, culture and ideology from the end of the Depression to the Bicentennial in 1976. While exploring their depictions of such issues as intervention in World War II, miscegenation, generational discord, ethnic ascendance, McCarthyism, civil rights, Vietnam, and Watergate, the author shows how the genre veered from sagas of national achievement to bleak visions of life in the US.
