about

When first published in 1969, Horizons West was immediately recognised as the definitive critical account of the Western film and some of its key directors. This greatly expanded new edition is, like the original, written in a graceful, penetrating and absorbingly readable style.
JIM KITSES is Professor of Cinema, San Francisco State University. He is the author of Gun Crazy (1994) and co-editor of The Western Reader (1998).
