newcover_med_hrWelcome to the Western American Literature Research site, a project of the journal Western American Literature and the Western Literature Association. From the “Authors” dropdown tab you can find links to relevant articles on a host of authors. In the future we will be adding additional authors as well as a variety of other topics.

Since 1966 Western American Literature has published cutting edge scholarship on the literature and culture of the North American West. This site makes that research easily accessible.

Note: this site links to the articles hosted on Project Muse. To download the articles you will need to have access to that service. The articles published prior to 2012 are also available for downloading from JSTOR.
