Westerns: Adult Genre Challenge #3

If you’re taking our Genre Challenge this is your opportunity to experience the uniquely American genre of Westerns.  Westerns started out as “dime novels” in the mid-19th century. Classic stories and writers helped invent how we imagine the Old West. The typical Western hero is the loner who rides into town, cleans things up, and rides out again.
