American Literature of the Westward Movement.
College English, v26 n2 p154-156 Nov 1964
A course taught at Notre Dame on American Literature of the Westward Movement, in its broadest connotation, and thought to be the only one of its kind, is outlined. Organized by sections of the country, the course progresses from an introduction to: (1) the Seaboard and the Piedmont, (2) over the Appalachians, (3) the Old Southwest and Twain, (4) the Great Plains, (5) on to the Pacific, and (6) Sooners, Okies, and Alaskans. A warning to students that the literature selected is biased toward adventure, savagery, action, danger, and problems of survival permits unambiguous course selection. Both required and non-required reading is indicated. (AF)
