"Still Wild" is perhaps the best compilation of modern Western short stories, and it's frequently used by universities as it best captures the wide diversity of today's Western United States and Canada's Prairie Provinces/5. "The severities of pioneer life yield up no Prousts," novelist McMurtry observes in his terse introduction to this varied gathering of short fiction by contemporary writers who "at one point or another in their careers have taken as their subject life in the American West." His point about pioneer life is that until recently most of those who wrote about the West were outsiders, not the native.

Told with suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild powerfully captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.
