By the early 1990s, the traditional male, shoot-'em-up western was riding into the sunset, heavily wounded. -- John Mart, Booklist, 1999

Westerns are evolving, but the appeal remains the same: freedom in a world of unspoiled nature. The hero is self-reliant, and the conflicts of right and wrong are resolved.
